CHICAGO — As the warm weather months approach in Chicago, more people head outside to dine al fresco in their neighborhoods. 

Here's a map and list of all Chicago restaurants and bars that have sidewalk cafe permits with the city.

While all of these places have the right to serve on the sidewalk, which is public property, that doesn't necessarily mean all of them have their sidewalk cafes open for business. Call ahead to confirm.

We'll update the map as more permits are issued.
