The July Hit List: Utopian Tailgate, Diver at the Park, Mino’s, and More


There’s nothing like July in Chicago. Colorful summer produce is on every plate, three-day weekends put everyone in a good mood, and, most importantly, outdoor dining and drinking is in full swing.

And that’s where Resy’s Hit List comes in. As you know, each month we bring you our picks of 10 restaurants we love, the spots you need on your dining radar right now. Some may be familiar; hopefully a couple will surprise you.

In celebration of summer, we’re dedicating this month’s Hit List to our favorite spots to eat and drink alfresco — the restaurants with gardens, backyards, and rooftops where you can make the most of blissful summer vibes. From the tropical escape that is Diver at the Park to handmade pasta on the patio at Mino’s, this is your July Hit List.
