Spring and summer months are a great time to get outside and do all of the things that can’t be done in the colder weather. It’s the perfect time to take hikes, go for a run or just relax in the warmer weather. For many, one of the true signs of spring and summer is when restaurants open their outdoor seating, allowing diners to take in the balmy summer days or the mild starry nights. For those looking for some wonderful outdoor dining spots in Lake Forest, here are a few worth trying:

Market House on the Square

Making its home in the heart of Lake Forest, Market House on the Square is one of the area’s preeminent eateries. With a focus on locally-sourced and artisanal fare, Market House on the Square offers guests a true farm to table dining experience. With a large and tranquil outdoor patio, diners also have an opportunity to enjoy an idyllic meal with house favorites including Thai Chili Amish Chicken, Pork Milanese, and Crispy Lemon Sole.

MLG Chicago

With a nod toward an old-fashioned supper club, MLG Chicago is the perfect spot for a special occasion or a relaxing night out.

Francesca’s Intimo

As part of a boutique chain of restaurants in the greater Chicago area, Francesca’s Intimo is the ideal location for an authentic Italian meal.
