Gold Coast: Table Fifty-Two
Located in Chicago’s historic Gold Coast neighborhood on Elm Street, right next door to Biggs Cigar Emporium, renowned Chef Art Smith brings elegance and charm not only to the Southern comfort menu, but also maintains an environment that will make you and your date want to stay for hours.

River North: Prosecco
It’s tough to top a romantic Italian dinner. Enjoy some top notch vino and fine Italian dishes in a beautiful, Venetian-designed room. Prosecco is in a very convenient location down the block form the Addison Gallery and just a couple of blocks south of the CTA Brown Line stop at Washington and Wells, where you can easily fall into opportunities to continue your evening after dinner.

Loop: Everest
You’ll be reminded of why you love Downtown Chicago and the people you’re with when you dine at Everest, situated atop the Chicago Board of Trade on the 40th floor against the backdrop of the Windy City’s gorgeous skyline. You and your date will be pleased and impressed with the French influence and knowledgeable wine pairing of this restaurant on South Lasalle, the southwest edge of the Chicago Loop.
