“Retro, reimagined” says it all: BLVD has a vintage Sunset Boulevard vibe that stuns and impresses. Think gorgeous chandeliers, luxurious seating, all paired with an exquisite menu. Inspired by Hollywood restaurants of the 1950s, the menu offers a thoughtful, modern take American classics and an array of cocktails and wines that you won’t want to miss.

This stunning modern French hideaway in River North is a true fine dining treat. Led by Chef Carrie Nahabedian, Brindille’s menu of foie gras, seafood, and lamb is well-deserving of it’s James Beard Award. The perfectly chosen and lengthy wine list tops off this dining experience.

I really love Boka in Lincoln Park for fine dining. The multi-year Michelin Star winning restaurant is upscale, yet not pretentious. Their seasonal menu has something that will satiate any palate and their extensive wine list has something for every connoisseur. Whether you’re seating in the glitzy bar area or the main dining room, you’ll have an exceptional experience at Boka!
