From the Inbox: New to Park Ridge, Holt's to offer al fresco dining

The summer season will soon be upon us and as the temperature rises it's time for patio seasoning at eateries in and around the city. Here's a new spot to add to your list of inviting al fresco dining spots.

New Park Ridge Restaurant Promises Impressive Patio for Spring

Spring has sprung in Chicago, which means patio season is official upon us!  New Park Ridge restaurant, Holt’s is excited to announce their soon-to-open sidewalk cafĂ©.  Located in the heart of downtown, Holt’s is a brand new eatery that brings a little city sophistication to the beautiful suburb of Park Ridge.

Their street-adjacent patio is sure to make Holt’s a seasonal hot spot, where groups of friends can catch up over dinner or enjoy a leisurely beer in the sun.  Strands of Edison bulbs will hang from above, giving the space a soft beautiful light at night while turquoise chairs, lush greenery and flower boxes will bring a vibrant pop of color to the space.

The 28-seat patio will feature two picnic-style tables with beer troughs as well as numerous regular tables.  Floor-to-ceiling windows on one side of the restaurant will open up onto the patio, allowing patrons inside to enjoy the beautiful weather too.

Understanding the unpredictability of Chicago weather, heaters will be on hand to make sure guests can enjoy the outdoor space (even if we get hit with a 50-degree day in the middle of May.)

Holt’s menu of contemporary American dishes and elevated bar food is complimented by a large beer, wine and cocktails list.  Guests can indulge in one of Holt’s utterly original pizzas or they can opt to create their own from a list of premium ingredients.  A slew of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers round out the menu.  Highlights from the current roster of offerings, which will change seasonally include:
  • Meatball & Ricotta Pizza Homemade Beef & Pork Meatballs / Whipped Ricotta Cheese / Tomato Sauce
  • Salmon BLT Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon / Plank Bacon / Lettuce / Tomato / Citrus Dill Mayo / Whole Grain Toast
  • Red & Golden Beet Salad Arugula / Goat Cheese / Candied Walnuts / Balsamic Vinaigrette
Almost all of Holt’s menu items (including their delicious pizzas) can be made gluten free.

Holt’s is located at 43 S. Prospect Ave. in Park Ridge, IL.  For more information, high resolution images or to speak with owner Matt Ranalli or managing partners Brad Doyle and Grant Blaszynski, please contact Samantha Crafton Public Relations directly.
