Elevated Dining Space
The Elevated Dining Space provides the intimacy of a private dining room with what we deem as the best people watching in River North (if we don't say so ourselves). Overlooking our main dining room, guests can relax at posh, oversized booths facing out into the dining room and overlooking the entire venue. This is definitely the space to see and be seen.
Accommodating between 15 to 20 guests for seated luncheons or dinners, the space is ideal for private daytime, evening and late night dining.
