About Arlington Alfresco 
Arlington Alfresco was first introduced in the summer of 2020, to provide additional outdoor seating for restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its creation was the result of an “explore all options” approach taken by staff, when identifying ways to support local businesses. After a successful first year in 2020, Arlington Alfresco has grown in popularity and continues to welcome guests and visitors from throughout the Chicago area every year from May through September.
