Concierges’ Faves for Great Restaurant Vibes


Sometimes you want an EXPERIENCE when you dine out, and these restaurants bring that to the table (pun intended)! From awesome plating to lively music and more, concierges pick these five restaurants when they’re looking for a fun vibe.

Barton G

Looking for theatrics and amazing food and drinks to boot? Look no further than Barton G! Enjoy a cocktail from the nitro bar (liquid nitrogen makes for super Instagrammable posts!) and shareable dishes like the Whole Grilled Branzino or the Truffled Steak Tatare amidst the creative glitz and glam of the space.

Cindy’s Rooftop

Views on views on views! Head over to Cindy’s at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel to take in the gorgeous views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan while sipping on a seasonal cocktail. Indulge in the creative dishes as well like the Venison Loin or Mushroom Risotto!


A upscale, sleek, and stylish vibe pairs well with classic Italian dishes that remind you of Grandma’s cooking. You don’t want to miss out on the Fritto Misto or the Braciole alla Nonnina or any of their signature cocktails.

The Lunchroom

Light, airy, and beautiful, The Lunchroom brings a relaxed vibe and a carefully curated menu to Space 519 that you’ll love. Enjoy fresh, California-inspired dishes like the Bangkok Bowl or Gold Coast Tuna Melt while sipping on one of their expertly made cocktails like the French 75.

The Girl and the Goat

A West Loop staple, The Girl and the Goat is the brainchild of Top Chef’s Stephanie Izard and packs a fun, exciting, delicious punch. The rustic and trendy atmosphere with an open kitchen pairs perfectly with the innovative small plates like fire roasted shrimp and duck tartare.
