A Modern Mexican restaurant and bar located in the West Loop, serving brunch, lunch and dinner. At más, they watch two-time Michelin Chef Yanitzin Sanchez and her team eradicate preconceived notions about Latin culinary tradition. The menu of tacos, crudos (Spanish for “raw”) and shareable plates is rich in both artistry and global flavor.

Bar Toma
Bar Toma is a regional Italian restaurant from Chef Tony Mantuano. The warm, welcoming restaurant features housemade pastas, sharable antipasti, entrees and pizzas from an imported Italian wood-burning oven. Approachable and accessible, Bar Toma offers traditional Italian recipes created in a contemporary fashion by Executive Chef Erik Freeberg, paired with Italian wines, cocktails and beers.

Hub 51Hub 51
HUB 51 is the new River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago’s social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.

Maggiano’s
At Maggiano’s the portions of Italian–American cuisine are large, reminiscent of a Sunday night visit to your grandmother’s house, or as they say in Italy, nonna’s casa! The recipes are simple, authentic classics, many of them coaxed out of Italian grandmothers, mothers, and aunts whose ideas of a recipe were a pinch of this and a sprinkle of that. With some trial and error, the chefs celebrated the birth of many of Maggiano’s signature dishes.

The Gage

The Gage invites you to savor their delicious, upscale comfort food, fine wines, boutique beers and whiskeys while enjoying the relaxing ambience of their vintage decor.

Tavern at the Park
