From the team behind One Off Hospitality Group, Executive Chef Paul Kahan and restaurateurs Donnie Madia, Terry Alexander and Kimberly Galban present Nico Osteria. An authentically Italian seafood restaurant, Nico Osteria at Thompson Chicago hotel brings rustic simplicity to the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast. <br /><br />Chef Erling Wu-Bower’s house-made pastas and fresh seafood, alongside Pastry Chef Amanda Rockman's unconventionally creative and approachable style are perfectly suited for the setting’s rustic elegance. <br /><br />Salone Nico is a welcoming gathering space, celebrating the European tradition of afternoon apertifis and low-proof cocktails. The approachable wine list features wines from Italy and Greece, as well as grower champagne, with an emphasis on small producers and older vintages. Grab a cocktail, sneak in a light bite or settle in for a night cap at Salone Nico.

"The entire meal was one delicious bite after another. Truly wonderful. But I called ahead to say it was a birthday and we got seated at a tiny table shoved up against the wall. The chairs were uncomfortable. Overall, I just feel like the atmosphere feels a little too casual for a $300/2 ppl meal. I will be back, but not for all four courses. Just some delicious pasta or crudo at the bar."
