Ritz Carlton Cafe

There’s no surprise that the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Chicago Hotel is home to an equally refined cafe.

Overlooking the hotel lobby, the sophisticated, yet casual setting of the cafe offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night fare daily with bright windows, wood finish and greenery.

Executive chef Mark Payne’s “Up Market” dinner menu highlights shared plates, local and organic produce, hand-cut pastas, wild fish, grass-fed beef, oysters and shellfish, artisanal cheeses and breads.

Try one of Payne’s seasonal specialties with dinner entrees such as:

  • Maine Lobster Bolognese: fresh fettuccine pasta served with creamy lobster sauce, rock shrimp and roasted cherry tomatoes.

  • Wild Alaskan Salmon: ginger soy poached salmon served with sweet shrimp dumplings and sesame-braised bok choy.

  • Mediterranean Lamp Chops served with roasted potato medallions with preserved lemon and olives and wilted spinach.

    Classic desserts include Chocolate Layer Cake, Seasonal Fresh Berry Salad and Coffee Creme Brulee.

    For an elegant dinner for two or more, enjoy the delicate fare of the Ritz-Carlton.

    Ritz-Carlton Cafe is located at 160 E. Pearson St. on the 12th floor (lobby level) of The Ritz-Carlton Chicago Hotel in Chicago.

    Dress is business casual.

    Reservations are recommended.
