The Lobby

Situated on the 5th floor of the elegant five-star Peninsula Hotel, The Lobby offers an exclusive dining experience with signature gourmet selections hard to find elsewhere.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a view of Chicago’s illustrious Michigan Avenue, while smooth piano and cello melodies grace the dining room, creating a relaxed and elegant atmosphere.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Lobby’s menu features dinner entrees such as:

  • Szechwan prawns served with fragrant jasmine rice and broccoli rabe.

  • Pecan crusted diver scallops served with herbed beurre blanc, saut?ed spinach and sweet potato mousseline.

  • Braised beef short ribs served with garlic-whipped potatoes and herb pistou.

    The Lobby’s signature daily, “Afternoon Tea,” invites patrons to enjoy rare teas from around the world while nibbling on sweets such as cherry scones, lavender marshmallow pillows or chocolate covered strawberries dipped in gold leaf.

    “Fashion Friday Afternoon Teas,” occur on select Fridays. While you enjoy afternoon tea, you can also enjoy an informal fashion show featuring some of Chicago’s most exclusive boutiques and retailers.

    “Chocolate at the Pen,” invites chocolate-lovers to feast on a rich and decadent chocolate buffet every Friday and Saturday evening.

    Whether visiting for a quick bite or an elegant afternoon for tea, The Lobby offers a unique and chic take on Contemporary American fare.
