Parson's Chicken and Fish (2952 W. Armitage Ave., Logan Square) has become nearly synonymous with patio season in Chicago. How? The enormous outdoor seating area with perks like a ping pong table and firepit, for one. Plus, there's the delicious boozy slushies (the Negroni is the most popular) and the perfectly fried chicken. It's the kind of place that will extend your personal outdoor dining season.
