Restaurants in Near West Side, IL


Recommended by Our Experts

Vivo

Vivo

Chicago, IL

Randolph Street continues its white-hot restaurant domination, but Vivo has long held court in the burgeoning strip (since 1991!). Classic Italian fare doesn't disappoint, nor does the nighttime view from the outdoor patio ( if you can score a seat).

Moto Restaurant

Moto Restaurant

Chicago, IL

One of the preeminent places for molecular gastronomy in the United States features surprises like a smoked fish course in a fish tank and shots of distilled jalapeño.

Sepia

Sepia

Chicago, IL

Sepia is not only a West Loop gem but a Chicago gem. It's one of the reasons we are known as one of the best food towns in the world. Their cocktail program is state of the art and their veal dish in the winter is ...OMG.

The Publican

The Publican

Chicago, IL

This place can do no wrong - great beer and oysters and brunch. Also try: mussels, fish stews, and roasted chicken.
