Located on the subterranean level of Dream Downtown, a crimson staircase leads to Cherry's warmly lit, romantic space replete with plush velvet seating evoking the feel of mid-century Paris. <br /><br />Cherry, created by co-owner of BONDST, Jonathan Morr, offers an innovative menu of French-inspired, Japanese fare complimented by a collection of more than 80 sake varietals and a list of hand-crafted cocktails. <br />

Conceptualized as an outgrowth, and a home for Chef Jesse Schenker and Pastry Chef Christina Lee’s Recette Private Dining “underground” supper clubs, “Recette”(recipe in French) pushes boundaries by offering the food demanded in a fine dining experience, but in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Recette is an urban American restaurant that marries traditional and progressive techniques, while manipulating ingredients and temperature to create maximum flavor. We honor the ingredients by refusing to use anything but the best. We adjust the menu seasonally to highlight the availability of these but quality, freshness and consistency in this always remains paramount. The sophisticated yet approachable menu is designed so that diners can order just as they please. With the option to participate in one of three tasting menu options or order from the playful menu of inspired snacks and plates, diners have the ability to customize their Recette experience.

"PB&J Pain Perdue was pretty good, but skimpy on the PB and overcooked on the edges. Excellent service. Nice, quiet atmosphere for brunch."

Carnivale is a reflection of Latin culture and community, as passionate as the people themselves. The soulful cuisine allows you to explore the dishes of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, El Salvador, and Mexico. The kaleidoscope of colors, music and playful décor ignites the sense of being in a Latin house party. Executive Chef Rodolfo Cuadros supports the Green City Market and uses as many local, sustainable ingredients as possible out of concern for the environment and community. Carnivale is the perfect location for your lunch, dinner, birthday, anniversary, wedding or corporate event. Carnivale has hosted exciting events such as Oprah’s “Color Purple” release party, the “Batman: The Dark Night Returns” wrap party and a private event with John Legend. Carnivale is located in Chicago’s West Loop, just off the expressway and close to downtown. It's also a quick CTA ride from Michigan Ave, Navy Pier or the Art Institute of Chicago.

"Terrific food (though I'd skip the Red Velvet Waffle dessert - not so good) and ambiance. Huge space with fun, colorful decor and even a live orchestra playing classical renditions of pop songs during the Sunday brunch!! I'm coming back the next time I'm in town!"

Opened by Jimmy Bradley in October 2001, this Tribeca favorite is a restaurant remarkably in tune with its neighborhood and the city at large. Featuring seasonal contemporary American cuisine from Chef Bradley and Executive Chef Ari Bokovza, and sincere hospitality in a handsome and casually elegant setting, The Harrison instantly makes you feel like you’ve come home. The restaurant also boasts a private dining room housed in its award-winning wine cellar, and outdoor café with Hudson River views and a bar that begs to be dined at for a less formal meal. Since April 2011, Harrison diners have been enjoying the cool, casual vibe of The Harrison at lunchtime. Lunch at The Harrison is suited for business meetings, a quick bite, and special occasions alike. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or a special event, The Harrison offers rustic, soulful fare, continuing owner Jimmy Bradley’s vision of bold, seasonally inspired cooking with sincere hospitality.
