Summer House Santa Monica

Summer House Santa Monica

Chef Jeff Mahin (Chef/Partner of Stella Barra Pizzeria and M Street Kitchen in Santa Monica, CA and Hollywood, CA and Do-Rite Donuts in Chicago) along with RJ, Jerrod and Molly Melman of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises and Chef/Partner Francis Brennan are bringing Summer House Santa Monica to Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood this fall. The California-influenced, American restaurant features a wood-fire grill as its centerpiece and will dish out an ever-changing menu that spotlights locally-sourced produce and ingredients whenever possible. In addition to simply prepared proteins and a large selection of market vegetables, Summer House Santa Monica also boasts Chef Mahin’s signature artisanal bread program, an extensive wine list, fresh-squeezed juices and a wide array of pastry and sweets. Seeking to make diners feel at-home, the restaurant has been designed to evoke the atmosphere of a summer beach house with whitewashed woods, warm tones and a large glass ceiling positioned directly over the dining room that brings the outside in no matter what the season. An open kitchen outfitted in earth-toned tiling and a five-foot, wood-fire grill that emulates a home hearth further fosters the comfortable atmosphere. The restaurant seats more than 200 diners and will be open for dinner seven days a week; Summer House Santa Monica is also open for lunch on Fridays and for breakfast and lunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
