Dubbed a “much-needed pre- and post-theater dining option in the Loop” by Radisson Blue Aqua’s concierge Rebecca Starodub, this urban American tavern marries a playful blend of high-brow cuisine with tavern-style fare resulting in creative iterations of familiar favorites.
Tortoise Supper Club
For Shannon Boland, chef concierge at LondonHouse Chicago, it’s all about the cozy retro vibe and classic steaks, chops, and fresh seafood at this metropolitan supper club. If you’re dining on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night, you’ll even get a side of live jazz music.
Tavern at the Park
A favorite place to grab a bite before or after visiting Millennium Park or taking in a show, the all-day menu here offers upscale comfort food with a twist. Start with the steak tavern burger sliders or treat yourself to their chicken pot pie, one of the best to be found in Chicago.
Little Goat Diner
This all-day upscale diner serves insanely creative takes on classic American comfort food. From over-the-top breakfast (breakfast spaghetti, anyone?) and exceptional burgers to fun desserts, this West Loop favorite is one you need to experience for yourself.
Describing it as “top shelf” across the board, this is a favorite of Langham Chicago concierge Philippe Gills. The menu here is loaded with fresh interpretations of tavern classics and seafood-forward dishes and libations, which play heavily on classic American cocktails.
