Bites and Sights: Your Guide to Chicago’s Rooftop Restaurants



Shannon Boland – LondonHouse Chicago

This acclaimed restaurant sits high above where Chicago parts and the river flows, just like the drinks. The recipe for the perfect evening at Londonhouse starts with their crispy-skinned roast duck, hay roasted squash, a hearty glass of Pinot Noir, and one of Chicago’s most iconic views.

Shanghai Terrace

Alex Yu – The Peninsula

I take every opportunity to flaunt my hotel’s Shanghai Terrace, the best fine dining Chinese in the city and an isle of serenity situated above the bustle of Michigan Avenue where you can dine, delight, and dim sum. 

Homestead on the Roof

Rebecca Starodub – The Ritz-Carlton

Homestead on the Roof is one of the most unique restaurants that happens to be on a rooftop. Featuring farm-to-table New American cuisine utilizing ingredients they grow on their own rooftop gardens, this is a must visit for anyone interested in seasonal ingredients and sustainable food. 

The J Parker

Testimony Fred Eberle – Alta at K Station

The J Parker at the Hotel Lincoln is casual and reasonably priced with good food and great views of the park and the city skyline.
