Few regions of the world offer a culinary anthology like the Mediterranean. And there's no better place to celebrate culture and food than here, Chicago. Chef Tim Graham abides.<br /><br />Contemporary preparations guide a tour down the fertile slopes of Northern Italy to the sea, and from the shores of Southern France to the exotic spice markets of Turkey. And you can witness every creation through the glass-encased show kitchen, in the dining room. Or reserve a front row seat with good friends, at the chef's table.<br /><br />For a different kind of view, look south. You have a box seat just above the intersection of State Street and Wacker Drive and below, the Chicago River—a passage as vital to the city's soul today as to Fort Dearborn more than 200 years ago.<br /><br />Welcome. You've arrived at Travelle. Indulge yourself with the food and drinks, and the views. Enjoy your stay.<br />

Cicchetti. Italian for "small plates" popular in Bacari Bars or Osterie in Venice, Italy. Usually accompanied by an "Ombra" or "Shadow" which can be a glass of wine, aperitivo or a signature or classical cocktail. Italian and Venetian inspired dining brought to you from the people behind Trattoria No. 10, Sopraffina Marketcaffes and Poag Mahone's. Welcome, we can't wait to see you!

Amuse at The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to present Amuse, the brand new dining room and bar nestled on the third level overlooking the spectacular Cochrane Atrium. Our dining room is perfect for a leisurely lunch upon visiting the VMFA, with several local dishes conceived and produced daily by Chef Greg Haley. From the greens in our salads to the vodka in our specialty martinis, Amuse is proud to use the finest ingredients grown and perfected here in Virginia. Our bar is an ideal spot for a fine glass of wine or cocktail, fitted with comfortable retro lounge chairs and marble tables. Weather permitting, our balcony will be open for dining, providing a spectacular view of the campus and our new sculpture garden. Group dining is available in our main dining room or in one of our two adjacent banquet rooms, complete with floor to ceiling glass walls and access to our spacious balcony. Visit Amuse and see for yourself!

Executive Chef Noah Sandoval (Schwa, Spring) brings his unique take on new American cuisine to the south east Lakeview neighborhood. Focusing on fresh, local ingredients and a blend of modern and classic techniques, the food of Senza explores a wide range of influences. Chef Sandoval's food is served in a dining room designed by Karen Harold (555 International), which features a unique blend of natural, hand-finished woods, warming textures, and modern art. The combination of flavors and space blend together to create a dining experience to satisfy the senses.
