Italian | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

Nico was terrific. Both the scallop and stuffed calamari appetizers were outstanding. And the pasta and king crab cioppino were equally excellent. The portions were ample. The deserts were a great end to the meal. The service was outstanding, the ambience most pleasant, and, even though we were there for about 2 1/2 hours, we were never rushed or pressured to leave. I will definitely go back. More

Probably the best brunch/breakfast I have had....from menu selection, to presentation of the delicious food and drink on the beautiful plates/tableware, to the ambiance and historic décor to the beautiful light coming in through the floor to ceiling windows. Best recommendation and a must visit while in Chicago. We will definitely be back next time we are in the city! More

French | Winnetka, North Suburbs

Probably the most outstanding meal we’ve enjoyed in the Chicago area. The creative dishes, perfectly prepared and presentations with dinnerware and timing make George Trois a premier addition to our Chicago restaurant scene. Chef Michael not only prepares the dishes, he comes over to each table for each course to explain both the inspiration and the preparation... I suggest making reservations and consider their wine pairings- More

Wonderful evening made even better by our server, Carlos. Carlos was fun, informative, and such a wonderful person. Request him if you can! The food was exceptional with a variety of flavor offerings. The building is very old, with a strange layout. The dining room is divided among several floors so be prepared to climb some stairs! Once you get over the weird building, and banquet seating, the experience was great. More

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
