For many, dining out is often an experience rather than just a means to eat. The ambiance of a restaurant can play a big part in elevating a meal into a memorable event. Chicago is fortunate to have an incredible array of eateries, some of which offer stunning settings that take things to a whole new level with everything from furnishings to lighting. Here are some great spots to explore near 215 West Apartments to take in Chicago’s most beautiful restaurants:
3 Arts Club Cafe
Diners might expect fine furnishings when eating at 3 Arts Club Cafe given its location within a Restoration Hardware store. What they may not expect, however, is the jaw-dropping setting created in this Gold Coast restaurant. A beautiful brick front building sets the tone for the elegant interior which features a glass-domed dining room and a gorgeous chandelier that hangs over lush greenery. Offering brunch and dinner throughout the week, guests can marvel at the design while enjoying items such as Thick Cut Pork Belly Bacon, Shaved Ribeye on Charred Garlic Bread and Slow-Roasted Chicken.
Located in the Fulton Market neighborhood, BLVD is a feast for the senses. An ode the famed Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, this retro restaurant is all about glitz and glamour. Dropped glass chandeliers highlight the spacious dining room which offers sleek, rounded booth seating with an Art Deco flair. The menu is as over-the-top as the design with Petrossian Caviar, a 20 oz. Bone-In Ribeye and Grilled Lamb Chops.
Another Fulton Market stunner, The Allis finds its home in the swanky hotel, SoHo House. Taking its name from the family that originally owned the historic building, The Allis was designed with rustic features including original wood ceilings and whitewashed brick walls. Industrial elements such as exposed ductwork help to establish a stylish yet comfortable spot to enjoy all-day dining with specialties that include Steak Frites, Atlantic Salmon, and the Roasted Half Chicken.
