As a Reserve diner, you have access to the best restaurants in town, and a few of them have recently earned a new accolade — a coveted spot on CS Magazine’s list of the 50 hottest, hippest restaurants in Chicago.
NELLCOTE (WEST LOOP)
Among CS Magazine’s “3 Places to See and Be Seen,” Nellcôte is named after the villa where the Rolling Stones recorded an album. Given this West Loop hotspot’s storied rock ‘n’ roll history, it’s apropos that Nellcôte is both a celebrity and a foodie destination.
FORMENTO’S (WEST LOOP)
One of CS Magazine’s “10 Most Exciting New Restaurants,” Formento’s delivers good old-fashioned classics in a sprawling two-story space. Chef Tony Quartaro manages to capture both comfort and flavor — think spaghetti and meatballs and eggplant parmesan — in one fabulous menu.
SEPIA (WEST LOOP)
Sepia may have one of CS Magazine’s “5 Best Wine Lists” and a Michelin star, but Chef Andrew Zimmerman’s food — and Wine Director Arthur Hon’s wine list (including 40+ sparkling wines) — is completely approachable for oenophiles, foodies and novices alike.
