Outdoor Cooking Party at The Chopping Block
Susan Ryan Photography

Make the most of spring, summer and fall in Chicago by hosting your private party on our beautiful outdoor patio at Lincoln Square. Our menus designed especially for grilling events offer a selection of upscale or casual bites and a chance for your team to enjoy outdoors in a relaxed, private setting. As with all events at The Chopping Block, guests can cook with our chefs as much or as little as they choose.

Our patio features two hybrid Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet grills, fabulous Big Green Eggs and an outdoor pizza oven to help your group create a beautiful feast together under the sun or stars.

From team building events to family reunions, an event on our patio provides the opportunity to cook together as a group while enjoying Chicago's best weather. Since our patio is open to the elements, additional deposits are required to reserve indoor kitchen space to eliminate the possibility of inclement weather affecting your event.

Welcome your guests to your event with a selection of our Outdoor Welcome Appetizers and choose from an array of Beverage Packages including our hand-selected, food-friendly wines. Our Grilling Menus offer an al fresco meal for any time of the day, from brunch to appetizers to a global feast made using both charcoal and gas grills.

"We were really excited to enjoy a nice summer night outside with great food, beverages and company. I had heard your outdoor kitchen was fantastic and it was nothing but that. Your chefs were informative at taking us through the prep of our grilling menu and answering all the questions we had. The food was fresh and absolutely delicious, along with a bit sinful (S'More Sundaes, please!). This summer kitchen experience left us wanting to come back again soon!"
