This is a stylish restaurant. It has an Asian cuisine but heavily influenced by Japanese. The sushi and sashimi were exceptional. Featuring extremely fresh fish, the taste of the ocean was never far away. The dragon roll had a particularly deft crunch to it. Our server could not have been more welcoming or more professional. The wine list was good but like most Chicago dining, was over priced. This is a truly wonderful place to share a meal with someone that you like. More

We selected Primebar as a pre-theater spot to eat. 6:30 was the perfect reservation and the menu looked as if it provided enough options. We weren’t looking for a “fancy” or quiet dinner spot, so it worked. On the way to dinner we pulled up the address in google and the information stated it was closed. I went to the website and it said the restaurant was only open 11-11 M-F , so I immediately called to try and clarify. No answer. We were trying to come up with a plan B, but we’re happy to discover the restaurant was indeed open and very busy. Our table was nice, service was good and food was decent. I can see this as a good post-work or casual group get-together spot. More

Located in the heart of the theatre district in the Chicago loop, we are located in the lobby of the 70 W Madison building. Whether you're looking for the perfect spot for your power lunch, happy hour, private event or pre-theatre dining we have the perfect space for you!

We believe in the long-term benefits of good food. We invest a little more time sourcing quality ingredients that are sustainable, locally farmed and hormone and antibiotic free.

We also value the short-term result of a fabulous meal. Our chefs spent a lot of time creating a menu stacked with options so fresh and delicious, our customers have to invest a few minutes of their own to make some difficult decisions!

We know that time is money, our team is excellent at discerning when our customers want to linger with their clients until the contract is signed, or when they need efficient service so they make it to the theater on time.More

Dearborn was ok. Food was great and service was excellent. We had been to The Gage the night before so had higher expectations I guess. Ambience not as inviting perhaps. May give it another shot More

Discover Chicago Downtown / Loop

Chicago's downtown Loop district is a bustling center of commerce known for its historical scenery and unique urban culture. Located between Chicago Street and Harrison Street, the Loop is also home to numerous eateries that draw inspiration from across the world. Visitors to the Loop regularly enjoy Chicago-style deep-dish pizza and hot dogs. While these classic offerings have earned a reputation as Chicago's most popular foods, foodies and culinary experts are impressed by the Loop's hip restaurants that are revolutionizing the dining scene. Many small restaurants in the Loop offer upscale New American fare. New American dishes often consist of traditional American dishes that are fused with foreign flavors. People in search of romantic dining environments can enjoy upscale steakhouses. Small family-owned Southern and Eastern European restaurants are also popular in the Downtown/Loop area.
