How We Are Handling Covid-19
Ørkenoy is committed to creating a safe, responsible, and sanitary environment for both our team and guests. We are carefully monitoring all the safety guidelines daily from the CDC, WHO, State of Illinois, and City of Chicago Health Departments and will take all necessary precautions to ensure you can enjoy our space safely.
We are now open for limited indoor dining & takeaway. Our new business hours are Wed-Fri 5-10pm, Sat 11-10pm, & Sun 11-9pm. Last seatings will occur 1 hr prior to closing. Our new main entrance is on Bloomingdale through the main lobby double doors. This is to ensure guests picking up To Go orders remain separated from guests dining in our space.
There will be a limited amount of tables available for reservations each day. The rest will be first come first serve. At this time we are only seating 40% capacity (no bar seating) to ensure everyone’s safety and tables are at least 6ft apart. Per the City of Chicago and CDC recommendations, we will not allow parties of more than 6 people to dine with us. Parties of 5-6 people are highly encouraged to call ahead and reserve a table. You may contact us at 312-929-4024 to reserve your table!
When arriving, please check in at the lobby with our host. If there are no tables available, we will take your number down and contact you when the table is ready. We encourage guests waiting for a table to go for a walk on the lovely Bloomingdale Trail or enjoy a beer in the lobby, with proper social distancing from our other guests and tenants in the building.
Each guest's temperature will be taken by one of our team members when checking in. Masks are required to be worn at all times over your mouth AND nose unless seated at a table while eating & drinking. This is out of respect to the other guests dining in and most importantly our staff.
After being seated, all orders may be placed via the QR code at each table on your mobile device. A member of our team will drop off your drink and food orders & clear your table so you may relax and enjoy your stay. There will be sanitizer at designated areas, and our staff will be available to help answer any questions you may have!
At this time we do not have outdoor patio seating. However, we do suggest taking our beers and picnic friendly food to go up on the Bloomingdale Trail above us where there is a lovely, grassy hill to sit at and spread out (with plenty of social distancing). Please be sure to toss all garbage and recyclables in the appropriate containers to keep the trail clean!
We are also currently working on a dog friendly, outdoor designated seating area to be unveiled in the near future! We are super jazzed to welcome you all back safely. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue seating everyone in our space safely.
Love, Ø Squad
