The Kitchen Chicago is a community bistro located in the historic Reid Murdoch Building downtown on the Chicago River, open seven days a week at 11AM. The menu focuses on rustic, organic plates sourced from local farmers and purveyors. The atmosphere and service reflects The Kitchen’s philosophy: community through food.

"Farm to table concept provides taasty, interesting food options. Service is outstanding. Great place for a business or casual lunch. Excellent dinner option before heading out to play or sporting event. Wine list needs a little work, but better options than most. Craft beer selection is more than adequate."

 Brass Monkey
Brass Monkey
An artful fusion of refined brasserie dishes and ‘70s American comfort food, deliciously enhanced. Chef Michael Dean Reynolds seamlessly pairs traditional brasserie dishes like Steak Frites and Roasted Amish Chicken with lighter, fun fare. A special “Hits of the ‘70s” menu focuses on ‘70s-inspired comfort food items. Sloppy Joe Sliders and Cheese "Balls" are given a contemporary twist, while bringing to mind the feeling of being served from your aunt’s kitchen. Pork Chop & Apple Sauce and TV Dinners are featured items. <br /><br />Cocktails are also ‘70s-inspired: a classic Harvey Wallbanger, Singapore Swing, vodka “Tang”, and of course, a Brass Monkey. S’Mores and Bananas Foster are dessert highlights.<br /><br />Menu is complemented by authentic ‘70s décor, with a vinyl room ft ‘70s faves and some surprise B-sides. DJs spin TH after work; F and Sa, late night. The patio is open and indoors has space for private and semi-private groups of 16-200; 400, if you rent the rooftop.

"How can you not love a tv dinner, with mashed potatoes and salisberry steak, chocolate fondue, or a modern interpretation of fish sticks? THe concept is great, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding. Great for date night, or any night. Craft beer list is excellent. Great cocktails. Looking forward to my next meal at the BM."

"The food selections were varied and well presented. Service was attentive, without being annoying. Onion soup is a must, although the soup of the day was very good. Prices are very reasonable. A strong recommendation is you are in the area."
