The Aviary in Chicago's West Loop gives diners a unique bar experience. The bartenders are trained chefs, and the cocktails, food and service are given four-star restaurant attention and detail. The Aviary's progressive tasting menu is both filling and fun as it mirrors the curated beverage program. Fresh herbs and produce are carefully sourced daily for the menu's dim sum bites, a la carte snacks and sharable plates. Drinks are prepared quickly and consistently with flavorful spirits.
Owned and operated by Nick Kokonas and chef Grant Achatz, The Aviary opens at 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Outdoor seating is available.
