About

HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.

The edamame and Shishito pepper appetizer is worth going for alone! Love the healthy light options such as the turkey meatloaf and pistachio salad.

The occasion was celebration of our daughter’s birthday. It was on a Saturday night around 8 pm, so the place was lively. Our server Brian was outstanding, with helpful recommendations and attentive service. The food was mostly excellent. We have been to Bin 51 before, and plan to return often.

Thanks for everything and we will always return!

Fun, energetic restaurant in a great area of Chicago. The food is fantastic and they have something for everyone. Came back the next day for their weekend brunch...highly recommended. Service was spot on and we had a large group (10 people) with some big eaters and drinkers.

Fish tacos - fish was over cooked and whole wheat tacos made it even dryer. Hub51 is one of my goto spots but i will avoid the fish tacos from now on.

SUCH A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Our server was by far one of the rudest in the industry and would roll her eyes at anything that was asked then take 20 minutes or forget the request all together. The food was also completely tasteless and overpriced for what you are getting. Basically paid $50 for a tiny bit of bland cauliflower Mac and the worst veggie tacos I’ve ever had. The margarita was the only thing that was fair, but didn’t off set the overall horrible experience. I definitely do not recommend. Waste of time & money! I ended up having to get food elsewhere later in the night after we left.

As with all of my dining experiences with Lettuce Entertain You restaurants, our service was outstanding! Friendly, informed, efficient, are all words I can use to describe the service staff, from hostess to server, busser, food runner, and a check in from the manager. I get the sense that they take a team approach to service.
Our food was delicious, though prices are higher than I expected. Overall, Hub 51 is a great option for dining downtown!

Boyfriend and I came here for New Year’s Day brunch. Won’t come back for brunch again. Was really surprised on how bad it was. Have eaten dinner before and it’s great. Sushi was terrible and dried out. Most of the food on the brunch line was cold. Felt like it was a huge waste of money.

Outstanding buffet brunch with many delicious choices. The pulled chicken nachos, brioche French toast, breads, sushi, and egg dishes were delicious. Never had such fluffy buttermilk pancakes. Loved the mini desserts. Christina, our server, was excellent. Wished they had buffet brunch every Sunday, not just holidays.

I made a last minute reservation for 2 at 8:30pm on a Saturday night. Got there early and found a spot at the bar. We ordered an old fashioned and it was the best cocktail we had all weekend. Once seated service was nice, a little busy it seemed. Food was decent but the old fashioned is what makes me want to go back!

I was in Chicago this past weekend and wanted to take my college roommate out for a birthday brunch on Saturday - we made a reservation at Hub 51 and I'm very glad we did. Ashley was our server and she was terrific. Not only did she walk us through the menu (Bloody Mary with savory spices along the glass rim recommended) and drink options, she was very accommodating as our party grew from two to four over the course of a leisurely hour or so. And she helped surprise my friend with a candle-topped piece of delicious carrot cake. In addition to a delicious meal, we had a great time talking about Chicago, careers, you-name-it. We weren't rushed at all and it was relaxing and celebratory at the same time. We wish Ashley all the best and thanks to her and to Hub51 for a great visit!
