About HUB 51
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.

HUB 51 Ratings and Reviews
We have been coming to Hub since it’s opening. We adore Lettuce Restaurants. However, this experience has continued what we all feel has been a downward spiral. We used to relish e nachos and Sunday night egg rolls. The rolls were exceedingly salty and the nachos just not good. The burgers had to be sent back as too rare and then burned(asked for medium). Salad was to have no dressing. Yet it was smothered.
We dine frequently at rpm steak and Italian, Ema, wildfire, and dipescara. Hub is out of our lettuce rotation.
Went to HUB 51 before seeing St.Vincent last weekend. Although the ambiance was rather loud, the food and cocktails were delicious. There's a little something for everyone here, including burgers, sushi, and Mexican food. Also, the prices weren't incredibly exorbitant.
Went here for late brunch. Their veggie burger is pretty delicious. We also got a breakfast burrito which was beyond bland -- I don't think they even added salt. I had to douse it in cholula to give it some flavor. We also tried their cereal milk cocktail which was super tiny for the price, pretty good at first but then it was hard to finish (even though I was sharing it with fiancé). The restaurant is nice from the inside! I might go back to try some of their lunch options. They participate in LettuceEats as well!
Hub 51 has a great atmosphere. Definitely swanky inside. The food was excellent and represented a good value. There is a dance club downstairs, but we were too early for that.
My dining occurred on New Year's Eve, but they still paid very close attention to my needs.
I ate the premium fish, grilled fish tacos. The portion was a good size and the food came out appetizing and hot. I will return again.
First time visiting Hub51. It was packed @ 6:15 pm in the dining room and very loud. Those high ceilings bounced the crowd noise across the room. Food was good, but not memorable. The service was fine, but slow to deliver food and drinks. With so many great options in the downtown, I'll pass coming back.
We really enjoyed our food but it was a bad choice for Christmas Eve dinner since the ambiance was definitively not to celebrate the holidays and our waitress seemed irritated that she had to work that night. However for any other occassion, we do recommend it!
Service was very slow and there wasn't that many people in the restaurant. Had ordered a glass of wine and it was $12.00 for about 1/2 cup. Fish tacos were dry and that was a "favorite". Quite disappointed with this restaurant....Chicken Nachos however were very good.
Went to Hub 51 for my birthday celebration on a Saturday night. Our server Michelle was amazing, I felt like she was part of our group. Henry, the GM, acknowledged my birthday and made sure everything was on point. The food was great & their Hub punch is definitely worth a try! We had amazing service all night and were invited back to the club for a night cap (which we never made it), but we will definitely be back in the future! They even offered to call our next reservation on our behalf to let them know we were going to be a few minutes late. Definitely recommend for your next birthday celebration. Thank you!
My kind of place . . . Very hungry after seeing “Beautiful” and wanted comfort food. Meat for the suburban hubby who would have gone right back home. Oh, and there was a club downstairs. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I would have stayed until close!🍷
We’ve dined at Hub 51 several times and the food and service are always over the top! On this special occasion, we celebrated our child’s Sweet 16th birthday. She and her friends had a spectacular time! The steak tacos were a HIT for all of us! There were scrumptious!!!
