Pearl Brasserie
  • Pearl Brasserie marks a return to classic French cuisine for Executive Chef/Partner Jason Paskewitz. Located in the center of Chicago’s Loop district and alongside the glistening Chicago River, the all-new Pearl Brasserie focuses on French fare and traditional brasserie favorites with modern spins, all served in an opulent atmosphere evoking the glamour and grandeur of 1920’s Paris. For his newest project, Paskewitz teams up with General Manager and Beverage Director Steve Carrow (formerly of The Lunatic, the Lover, & the Poet and Naha), who leads the restaurant’s front-of-house team and curates the European-inspired cocktail and French-driven wine programs. The elegant and opulent space evokes Parisian Art Deco decadence with dark woods, brass fixtures, and plush velvet banquettes. A 40-foot marble-top bar anchors the dining room and floor-to-ceiling windows open to the street. Chef Paskewitz can be seen most nights expediting from the restaurant’s expansive open kitchen and chatting up guests at the 6-seat chef’s counter, which offers a few lucky diners a front-row seat to all the action of the bustling kitchen. Venture outside to the restaurant’s 120-seat riverside patio with a new outdoor bar for sunset views over cocktails or dinner under the stars.
