Drawing influence from the Euro-Asian unions of China, India and Southeast Asia's colonial past with Portugal, the food at Fat Rice combines homestyle comfort with exotic, lesser known ingredients and flavors. Fat Rice is the celebration, preservation and evolution of these flavors, embracing the traditions of old and presenting them in a new light. Our food is made fresh right here and can be enjoyed at communal tables with drinks from our full-service bar that offers original cocktails, teas, and delicious Portuguese wines.

Located on the second floor, its soaring ceiling and<br />marvelous views of the city make Pavilion an elegant space to unwind and converse with a glowing fireplace and grand piano as a backdrop. Pavilion is home to an Afternoon with Wedgewood, a traditional tea service that first debuted at The Langham, London in 1865. An afternoon with Wedgewood includes proprietary Langham teas and an array of sweet and savory bites. All are served with traditional displays and flourish. Expect local talented pianists during weekend afternoon tea. <br /><br />Following the hotel’s traditional tea service – The Langham Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood - Parlour at the Pavilion, will warm guests’ hearts from the inside out with an extravagant line-up of sundaes and floats designed to evoke the nostalgia of a favorite childhood treat. <br /><br /> Parlour at the Pavilion emulates a vintage-style ice cream parlor with a whimsical staff wearing retro-style uniforms serving select homemade ice creams.

Inspired by the legacy of our families in America, we bring you Asian Outpost. Our heritage dates back to turn of the 20th century when great grandfather Woo arrived in Hawaii to study medicine and to the 1950s when our grandparents migrated here to operate their restaurants. Now, we embark on our journey at Asian Outpost in order to share our heritage with you. We are heavily influenced by the communal meals prepared at our family gatherings. Some of our food is created from family recipes and some take on a more local taste. No matter the recipe, all of our dishes revolve around our desire to cook and serve food that our friends and family can enjoy.

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.

"Lured by the non-profit side's mission, I made reservations to give The Kitchen a shot. The atmosphere is beautiful, great detail. I got a view of the lake, while the boyfriend got a view of a very energetic and well-done kitchen. For drinks, we opted for the Kitchen red, which was mellow and paired well with the food (to be discussed) and winter G&T, unique flavors for the season. Food wise, the spicy green salad is delicious and the mussels are quite sizable to be an entree. The pork loin is well cooked and the grilled apples tasted like apple pie--delicious. The trofie alla bolognese has a spice to it and quite tasty, especially for the carnivores--beef, pork, and lamb. Would definitely go back!"

City Winery is the second of its kind, following the New York City flagship’s model: It’s a functioning winery, a top-notch music venue, and a full-service restaurant, all housed in a massive 33,000-square-foot facility in the West Loop.<br /><br />The wines are exceptional: Grapes are imported from renowned regions around the country, then crushed and aged on site. Wines are poured by the glass or bottle, with many available on tap.<br /><br />The menu features Mediterranean-inspired small plates designed to complement the extensive wine list. Burrata, arancini, flatbreads, and hearty meat dishes are varied enough to please a diverse crowd over a few rounds of wine. Servers are happy to point you toward their favorite bites and paired wines, and with a concert next door almost any given night, dinner at City Winery means there’s always something fun to experience.
