American Contemporary

Experience award-winning dining during your trip to The Magnificent Mile. Some of the best restaurants in Chicago are renowned for the evolution of the American tradition in upscale and vibrant settings.

Contemporary cuisine doesn't fit neatly in one category, but signature dishes are often rooted in regional, farm-to-table ingredients. And sometimes simple is best when it comes to essential flavors. Menus typically rotate during the year to highlight seasonal standouts. And of course, don't forget locally brewed beers or classic cocktails to pair with your meal!
