What's better than a delicious meal? A delicious meal with your furry best friend by your side!
Pet-friendly restaurants can turn a simple meal into a memory with your four-legged companion. Here are 3 restaurants near Lakeshore East with perfect pet policies.
On the bottom floor of the beautiful Aqua at Lakeshore East is Filini, an Italian restaurant with a great menu and a soft spot for pooches. Out on the patio, you can sit down to a Bolognese and a Burgundy while your pup bellys up to a bowl and a "Bad to the Bone" burger. Then top it off with a "Frosty Paws" ice cream. Whether or no you want to share a spaghetti noodle Lady and the Tramp style is up to you.
Chicago Burger Company
Situated right on the North shore of the Chicago River, the Chicago Burger Company is a sensory wonderland for dogs. On the waterfront patio, you can enjoy classic burgers or hot dogs while your hot dog chomps down on a complimentary bone. There are also beef and rice specials available for your dog to nosh while watching the boats go by just a few yards away. And with its position on the River Esplanade, warm days will bring plenty of passersby for your pup to watch and make new friends.
Every Saturday and Sunday, you can find Waggin' Weekends at 312 Chicago, where Rover can eat like a king with a special canine menu. Dogs can choose between chicken & pasta or salmon & white rice, and finish the meal with a tasty beefsicle, which is exactly what it sounds like. For the human in this relationship, 312 Chicago offers an inspired Italian menu with classic staples and inventive new dishes. While the doggy menu is only available on the weekends, the patio is pet-friendly 7 days a week.
