Best Restaurants in the Loop
“Taking over where Henri left off is this less formal Italian in its prime Loop location across from Millennium Park, where salumi, cheeses, pizza and pasta are joined by a handful of high-end entrees. Signature cocktails and an extensive wine list are also part of the package, and the relaxed space features leather banquettes, bare tables and windows overlooking Michigan Avenue.”
Chicago’s Best Theatre District Restaurants
“The same team from the Gage and The Dawson are behind this Italian go-to, which specializes in authentic, seasonally-driven cuisine from executive chef Chris Gawronski (think house-made pastas, an in-house charcuterie program, stone oven pizzas, and coastal seaside plates). Leave it to executive pastry chef Kym DeLost for dessert; her chocolate bombolini is an instant fan favorite.”
Dining Guide: The Best Restaurants in Chicago
“Terrific rustic Italian food is just within reach of Millennium Park and Chicago’s Cultural Mile. Order one of chef Christopher Gawronski’s thin-crust pizzas or tender pastas, a glass of wine, and relax.”
