Your pup doesn’t have to be a Spinone Italiano or a Neapolitan Mastiff to enjoy the Italian cuisine served up on the pet-friendly patio of 312 Chicago. Start with a Fritto Misto or Crostini di Burrata, then choose from one of their house-made fresh pasta dishes or entrees like Grilled Beef Tenderloin topped with truffle butter. 312 Chicago offers Waggin' Weekends on its patio, with brunch dishes like Smoked Salmon Benedict for the humans and complimentary peanut butter biscuits and beefsicles for your pooch. If that's not enough to keep the hungries away, they also have a doggie menu you can order from--though that's not free! Open breakfast weekdays 7 to 10 a.m., weekends 8 to 11 a.m.; lunch weekdays 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; dinner Tuesday through Saturday 5 to 10 p.m., Sunday through Monday 5 to 9:30 p.m.; brunch weekends 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
