my favorite thing about the weather getting warmer is being able to finally enjoy all of chicago’s outdoor patios. we are fortunate that we have plenty of great restaurants nearby and trust me, we take full advantage of these. anyone who knows adam and i {and gruber for that matter} knows just how much we love our food.

last night we had our first outdoor patio “date night”. date nights happen at least once a week and when the weather is warm they usually include gruber. for those of you that haven’t yet checked out fish bar in lakeview – head over there now! seriously, what are you waiting for? the food is great and the atmosphere is even better. although gruber isn’t technically allowed on the patio he somehow always finds a way to get himself there.

we always start out at fish bar by ordering 4-5 dishes {this quickly increases to 6-7 dishes as the dishes begin to come out}. with an ever-changing menu, it’s great because you never know what’s going to be fresh. below are a few dishes from last night’s dinner.

i’m hoping that the warm weather is finally here to stay and that we can enjoy many more outdoor patios this summer!

ps. how cool is it that they write the menu on the windows!
