An exceptional Michigan Avenue restaurant in a Chicago landmark. Nestled at the base of Chicago's legendary Tribune Tower, this stunning restaurant is a vibrant addition to one of Chicago's most beloved and recognizable skyscrapers. Incorporating signature Tribune elements into the design, Howells & Hood pays homage to John Howells & Raymond Hood, architects of the Neo-Gothic landmark.

With a unique and refined culinary program, unparalleled drink selection (the most beer on draft in Chicago), and impressive staff, Howells & Hood is a magnificent complement to Michigan Avenue. The menu offers brilliant twists on American classics. Chef Scott Walton brings his talent and reputation to Bottleneck’s kitchen, as he is one of Chicago's foremost authorities on fresh and sustainable cuisine. The dishes reflect this dedication to brilliant execution and delicious fare.

Howells & Hood spans 17,300 sq. ft. of indoor venue space, as well as a 5,700 sq. ft. outdoor patio. Additionally, the 25th floor's outdoor veranda offers stunning, 360 degree views of the city's skyline, making this restaurant the ideal space for corporate, private and social events. Howells & Hood is sure to please locals and tourists alike, set just off the Chicago River, in the heart of the Mag Mile.
