Restaurant Roundup: The Loop's Newest Eats
You won’t find a shortage of great food in Chicago, but these three new spaces in the Loop will have you drooling.
1 W. Washington Street, Chicago, IL, 60602, US
The Atwood, inside Kimpton’s Hotel Burnham, reopened today after a three-month renovation. The reimagined restaurant has a brighter and more historical feel, with seating overlooking State and Washington streets through 18-foot-tall windows. This is the perfect location for theatre-goers, State Street shoppers, and locals looking for a signature Chicago experience. The restaurant’s menu includes everything from gourmet mac and cheese to seared Alaskan scallops. The restaurant’s new expanded bar is also crafting some pretty impressive cocktails.
Seven Lions Chicago
130 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60603
Seven Lions, the restaurant which sits across from the Art Institute’s signature bronze lions, has been garnering a lot of attention since it opened in late February. Take a look at their menu and you can see why – the restaurant’s dessert menu alone will have you drooling. The breakfast cereal bowl for dessert has our minds blown. However, Chicago foodies have been talking about the entire menu and the restaurant’s owner, Alpana Singh. A former host of “Check Please” and the mind behind James Beard Nominee, The Boarding House, Singh has brought her signature elegance and out of the book food to the Loop.
Good Stuff Eatery
22 South Wabash Ave. Chicago, IL 60603
Good Stuff Eatery is more than your typical burger joint. Redeye’s “The Great Burgerelli,” a connoisseur of burgers throughout Chicago, named Good Stuff Eatery, “quite possibly the best fast-casual burgers in Chicago." That’s a big title, but the new Loop eatery has been living up to it. Since its opening in late January, tourists and Chicagoans alike have been falling for these mouth-watering burgers.
