Read on to find out where you should make your reservations.
Naf Naf Grill
For a delicious sample of Middle Eastern fare, Naf Naf Grill stands out from every other falafel place in the city. You’ll find a vast array of tasty delicacies, including made-from-scratch pitas, freshly prepared sauces, and hand-cut salads. The shawarma and falafel are award-winners, so miss them at your peril.
Everest could get away with selling pretty mediocre dishes — views from its perch on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange would quell many a complaint. Thankfully, the food is as good as the view. French-inspired dishes are Everest’s forte, and standouts on the menu include roasted rack of lamb and foie gras.
The Gage is one of the most well known restaurants in downtown Chicago. They focus on rustic American fare served with a high-end twist. Your Gage venison burger will come dripping with gouda and smoked jalapeno. There’s also a famously extensive whisky list, and Gage is home to a wicked selection of wines.
If you’re looking for something a little different, Brightwok Kitchen is ideal. Its build-your-own bowls let you choose your sauce, base, protein, and vegetables, and you can top your culinary creation off with a whole host of exotic extras, including a crispy egg or caramelized pineapple.
Use a Chaufeur to Make the Most of Chicago Loop Restaurants
Lunch or dinner in the Chicago Loop should be a luxurious treat, and what’s more luxurious than having a chauffeur drop you off and pick you up? You’ll avoid the expense and hassles of parking on some of Chicago’s busiest streets, and having a chauffeur is ideal when you’re heading from your restaurant to a nightclub or cocktail bar.
