What restaurants are near Waldorf Astoria Chicago?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Chicago’s restaurant scene is second to none, and Waldorf Astoria Chicago is located in the middle of many of the city’s top eateries. For a classic Chicago dining experience head to Gibson’s on Rush Street — this steakhouse is often considered the best in the city (the large martinis are legendary in their own right). For deep-dish pizza, head to Giordano’s, Gino’s East, Lou Malnati's or Pizzeria Uno, all within walking distance of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
 
The fine dining restaurants around the hotel are truly spectacular. Hit up Tru, L20 or Spiaggia for wonderful multi-course dinners. If you’re into celebrity chefs, take time to visit Art Smith’s Table Fifty-Two and Rick Bayless’ trio of restaurants Topolobampo, Frontera Grill, Xoco (all located next to each other).
 
Balsan, the hotel’s French bistro, is also an excellent choice — you’ll see a lot of locals at this casual-chic spot. The menu is featured around small plates and the cheese and charcuterie are consistently exceptional.
