Best Patio

263 E. Whittier St., German Village


We've been dreaming of patio weather a lot lately, and one vision in particular is fighting its way through the blinding snow: A warm summer evening among the lush greenery and chilled sangria of Barcelona's soothing outdoor retreat. The neighborhood is German and the cuisine is Spanish, but the relaxing patio is from another world altogether.
