Tavern on Rush

This Chicago favorite is located on the bustling Rush Street, and welcomes many regulars and tourists daily. The lounge on the first floor consists of a large bar and tables for reservations for 2-4 persons. On the second floor is a lavish restaurant where a more intimate meal can be shared.

Most Chicago restaurant reviews describe Tavern on Rush as one of their favorite places to dine or grab a drink in Chicago. This place has the appearance and feel of a gentleman's club with the dim lighting, mahogany furnishings and leather booths, and they even sell cigars; however, the restaurant has a lively feeling with its open kitchen and laughter from the many patrons. Certainly one of the best Chicago restaurants that offers a wide variety of cuisine.

Restaurant favorites include:

  • Steak Teriyaki with Crispy Noodles
  • Caesar Salad
