Located along the Chicago river in the burgeoning Goose Island neighborhood, Azul is an upscale mariscos (seafood) restaurant serving an expansive menu of Latin-inspired fare. The concept aims to combines the ethos of an authentic mariscos restaurant with modern hospitality practices and all the touches of a sophisticated, lively spot.

Azul’s chef-driven menu is brimming with refined representations of classic mariscos cuisine. Created by Executive Chef Michael Hernandez, Azul will offer a variety of grilled, baked, fried and raw proteins as well as ceviches, seafood cocktails and artfully arranged family-style platters.

An inventive beverage program includes craft cocktails, cervezas, wine and international spirits. A list of signature libations will include original creations like the Cantarito, a citrusy tequila-based drink served in jarritos (clay pots). The space itself is a visual experience that’s as bold and beautiful as the food & drinks themselves. Original artwork in the form of ocean-inspired murals by Mexico’s Senoke punctuate the space.

The crown jewel of Azul will undoubtedly be its rooftop – one of the largest open-air rooftop in the city of Chicago. Additional patios situated on the first floor provide extra options for al fresco dining & drinking in the spring, summer and fall.
