    Does anyone know of roof top restaurants in the suburbs? I know there are many in the city but they are kind of a rarity outside of that. I have begun compiling a list.

    I will start.
    Avenue Ale House in Oak Park has a very pleasant roof top. It is not completely covered but does have a lot of big umbrellas. https://www.avealehouse.com/

    One Lake Brewing also has a roof top in Oak Park. Have not been there yet. https://www.onelakebrewing.com/eat

    Il Sogno in Wheaton has a beautiful roof top.

    If anyone is going to these places, its worth checking hours and also making a reservation as they are popular spots to dine.

    Durty Nellies in Palatine claims to be the only restaurant with rooftop dining in the NW suburbs.
    180 N Smith St, Palatine, IL

    Haven't eaten there in a few years, so don't know what they're doing now. But they do have dining on the roof.

    For years, I have seen what appears to be a roof top restaurant just east of Mannheim Road between Kennedy Expressway and Irving Park Road.

    I would think by the airport might be roof top restaurants for airport and airplane fans to watch the activities.

    Five & Dime has a nice rooftop space, featuring "best of" food from sister restaurants Taco Diablo, Blue Horse Tavern, and Lulu's Dim Sum and then some, as well as some of their own burgers, grilled on the roof top.

    Also, Good To Go has a nice rooftop, with live music weekend nights, and very good Jamaican food.

    It does have a roof top and a shaved roast beef sandwich for $30. The food is average and on par with Chili's et al. Plus it's way overpriced. Avoid at all cost.

    Although we've never been, I believe that Cooper's Hawk on Butter field in Downers Grove has one also.

    What trash piece of journalism . One of the places in this article: Gattos, on 143rd, Orland Park has been closed for several years and new signage indicates a Greek Restaurant names Opa is in the works.

    I was in Glenwood, Illinois yesterday and a new place CHUG-A-LUG Pub with a roof top appears to have opened at 18409 S Halsted St, Glenwood, IL 60425
