The Bristol Est. 2009

2152 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL, United States

This is where you go to show off if you're celebrating in Chicago.
Where else can you take in a private art gallery while snacking on must-try dishes, according to Zagat, GQ, and the Chicago Tribune? Seat 130 for a grand dinner of lively conversation or invite 160 of the finest drinkers you got to stand around and gawk at the cocktail line-up. It doesn't hurt that the restaurant has a reputation for high-quality ingredients coming from a network of sustainable farmers, foragers, and artisan craftsmen.
