Ah, there’s nothing quite like dining in downtown Chicago — from the world-class cuisine, to the top-ranked chefs, to the beautiful design of each fabulous restaurant. The West Loop offers tons of amazing options when it comes to great food and a luxurious dining experience! Here are the top three restaurants to check out when you’re in the West Loop Area.
Glazed pork belly with roasted squash and kale, roasted venison and sausage, seared monkfish with cured duck. These are just a few of the mouthwatering dishes on Blackbird’s menu! Located on 619 West Randolph Street, this modern fine-dining establishment is critically acclaimed for its delicious food and talented chefs like Executive Chef Paul Kahan — winner of national James Beard Foundation Awards for excellence in cuisine. Enjoy a nice romantic evening here or celebrate a big event in Blackbird’s exclusive private dining room.
Girl & the Goat
Located on 809 West Randolph Street, Girl and the Goat is another West Loop hot spot to explore. With Stephanie Izard as the Executive Chef, who won on Bravo’s hit tv show Top Chef, the food here is top-notch! Sweet potato bleu cheese pierogies, seared diver scallops, escargot dumplings, pan roasted drum fish — the menu list is filled with dozens of delicious dishes. And, to top it all off, the atmosphere is fun, lively, and welcoming enough to make you feel right at home!
Another delectable Randolph Street addition to the list, Au Cheval is an upscale, open kitchen-styled diner with a flair for unique drink names and and hearty menu items. Pair their famous “Boo Radley” or “Hemingway Daiquiri” with foie gras or General Jane’s honey-fried chicken with chili. Or, enjoy one of their amazing, award-winning cheeseburgers that the Food Network describes as having “the perfect burger-to-cheese ratio” on their Top 5 Burgers in America list.
