Chicago’s City Tavern selected as Concierge Preferred Hot Pick of the Week
We take our inspiration from the 18th century tavern — a meeting place for poets, artists, government officials and the common man. Brought in from sailing routes throughout the world with fare from Spain, Portugal, Germany, and the West Indies, the food at local taverns was as unique as the patrons. Our chef has created a menu that takes a modern spin on some classic tavern recipes with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients.
Our goal at City Tavern is to provide a fresh take on the taverns of old and to provide a warm, comfortable and friendly environment where the entire community can gather.
