If you weren’t aware that Filini Bar and Restaurant, the sole eatery inside Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago, was Italian, you might mistake it for a sleek Scandinavian bistro. All white and stainless steel, the dining room’s aesthetic has almost a cold seriousness about it — that is, until you notice the playful pattern of white ceramic tiles that add texture to the ceiling, or sink into an oversized plush-velour booth next to the floor-to-ceiling windows.

With dishes that are presented as beautifully as they are delicious and servers who go out of their way to make every dining experience enjoyable, Filini is a comfortable eatery disguised as a glossy design statement.
