The Chicago Diner

For the vegetarian in us all, you can't beat Chicago Diner. With reasonably priced entrees that seem un-vegetarian, you're sure to feel good for having noshed here. That way, you can be a lil' naughty as the day progresses.

The Chicago Diner

3411 N Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 935-6696

Las Mananitas

You can't miss the pink awening at this Halsted Street institution. With an expansive patio and a margarita list almost as large. This is the "it" place to be during the parade. I warn you, however. Do not over-imbibe on their margaritas.

Las Mananitas

3523 N Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 525-2109

Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club

This next stop along the parade route is at times jammed. Only because the floats in the parade are usually marred here because of the bend at Halsted and Broadway. Stopping here for a martini is sure to get you through the remainder of the parade.

Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club

3700 N Halsted
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 525-1111

North Coast Cafe (Closed)

Usually at this stop on the parade, most people have had a bit to drink and are in dire need of something to soak up that alcohol. Stop in for some good home cooking with a Mediterranean twist.

North Coast Cafe (Closed)

3613 N Broadway
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 549-7606

Melrose Restaurant

Oh to see and be seen. Is that a question? Melrose Diner's patio is larger than most people's home's. It seems fit that one would opt to sit outside, eating healthy portions of anything that you can imagine while watching the parade go by.

Melrose Restaurant

3233 N Broadway
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 327-2060

Bamee Noodle Shop (Closed)

In the mood for some Thai? Need to sit down? Here you go. Bamee Noodle Shope is famous for, well, their noodle dishes. A perfect afternoon meal. So, carb load yourself and know that you are almost at the finish line of the parade.

Bamee Noodle Shop (Closed)

3120 N Broadway
Chicago, IL 60657 (773) 281-2641

Zucco (Closed)

Zucco will have their patio open for the parade. Serving great martini's to either end your day or begin your night. This is probably my favorite spot to watch the parade from.

Zucco (Closed)

Chicago, IL 60614 (773) 248-7263
