    The threats of protests during the NATO summit isn't stopping restaurants from staying open.

    Crain's Chicago Business reports restaurants like Bella Bacino's pizzeria on Wacker and the Purple Pig on Michigan Ave. plan to stay open in the midst of the protests.

    Even restaurants in the south loop, closer to McCormick place, aren't closing up shop. Brasserie LM, a French restaurant, is even offering 20 percent off to people who live in the area, according to Crain's.

    There are a few restaurants, like the Sweetwater Tavern & Grille on Michigan Ave., that will be making some adjustments to their outdoor seating. The restaurant also plans to have more staff as a security measure.
