Travelle - The Langham, Chicago
Contemporary American | River North Chicago
158 reviews

Few regions of the world offer a culinary anthology like the Mediterranean. And there's no better place to celebrate culture and food than here, Chicago. Chef Tim Graham abides.

Contemporary preparations guide a tour down the fertile slopes of Northern Italy to the sea, and from the shores of Southern France to the exotic spice markets of Turkey. And you can witness every creation through the glass-encased show kitchen, in the dining room. Or reserve a front row seat with good friends, at the chef's table.

For a different kind of view, look south. You have a box seat just above the intersection of State Street and Wacker Drive and below, the Chicago River—a passage as vital to the city's soul today as to Fort Dearborn more than 200 years ago.

Welcome. You've arrived at Travelle. Indulge yourself with the food and drinks, and the views. Enjoy your stay.
