Downtown Restaurants

Food has always been a huge part of what makes Chicago unique. This is a world-class dining destination, complete with award-winning chefs, innovative cooking styles and hungry foodies. And the abundance of downtown restaurants means you don't have to venture far for a taste.

The Chicago Loop is considered the heart of downtown, and encompasses the areas near Millennium Park, the shopping and entertainment district along the State Street, as well as the Financial District for all things business. The best downtown restaurants in the Loop offer the ultimate in convenience — bring the family to Park Grill after taking selfies with "The Bean" or get in some pre-theater dining before a show with Broadway in Chicago.

The Magnificent Mile boasts downtown Chicago restaurants along its grand boulevard Michigan Avenue, plus in the surrounding Gold Coast and Streeterville neighborhoods. Dine and shop in style — this district is home to 500+ boutiques, brand stores and luxury malls.

While more downtown restaurants in Chicago make River North a destination for late night fun, the West Loop is where you can spot the city's most progressive chefs and the South Loop is home to old time favorites.
