Exciting New Additions to Chicago's Dining and Drinks Scene

With world-renowned eateries like Alinea and Avec, Chicago has made its way to the forefront on national culinary excellence over the past decade or so. For Chicago condo owners and the city's residents, living in areas like River North, the Gold Coast, Streeterville and Lincoln Park often means quick and easy access to some of the finest dining and libations in the nation, and a recent report from Crain's Chicago Business gave the details on some stellar additions to this fine city's bustling food and beverage culture.

First off, there's Three Dots and a Dash, located beneath Lettuce Entertain You's Bub City at 435 N. Clark Street in River North. What is it, you ask? Why only the city's most hip tiki bar, with Polynesian and Hawaiian-style drinks and decor and a laid-back island vibe perfect for warm summer nights in the City of Wind. Chicago condo owners can take pleasure in the treasure chests of tiki and champagne libations served in this elegant lounge—all while wearing the same Hawaiian shirt they had on for a casual Friday.

Also in the River North area, and located right next to the famed East Bank Club where Chicago condo owners love to work out and take spa days, is Brendan Sodikoff's Dillman's deli, which will be a welcome addition to the area's lunch scene, which already features such standard-bearers as Baume & Brixe.

In other news, several renowned chefs and restaurateurs were recently inducted into the Chicago Culinary Museum and Chefs Hall of Fame. Paul Kahan of Blackbird and Avec and Rich Melman of LEYE were two Chicago culinary visionaries that made the cut at this year's awards.

If you'd like to hear more about the amazing qualities that make this city one of the most beloved in the world, and the amazing Chicago condo opportunities that abound here, please contact me. It would be my pleasure to assist you with all your Chicago condo and real estate needs.
