Time:2021-9-17 source: Six forum Author: Six forum read:10+

  Chicago officials have fully reopened the city’s bars and restaurants and eliminated all capacity and social distancing restrictions as COVID-19 rates continue to plummet. It’s a turning point that the hospitality industry has long awaited, and portends a bustling summer to come.

  Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot have also followed the CDC’s lead and lifted mask mandates, but stress that restaurant and bar owners have the right to require customers to wear face coverings inside their businesses. Diners should remember that not everyone is vaccinated, including young children.

  The following are just some of the restaurants that have reopened their dining rooms, patios, and takeout windows. It will be updated periodically.
