There are plenty of restaurants located near The Peninsula Spa Chicago. If getting a lavish massage or facial has worked up your appetite, the Four-Star spa has some eateries in the same building. Shanghai Terrace inside the Five-Star hotel serves up delicious dim sum and fantastic Peking duck in a setting reminiscent of a 1930s supper club. Head downstairs to The Lobby for a fresh lunch or dinner filled with American fare and attentive service. To accompany your meal, the restaurant offers floor-to-ceiling windows offering a great view of the Chicago skyline.

There are some excellent choices located outside of the hotel as well. The Four-Star Les Nomades restaurant isn’t far from The Peninsula if you’re looking for a romantic and intimate French dining experience. Or you can surround yourself in a gallery-type space at Tru. The Four-Star restaurant features a bountiful selection on the menu — you can choose a three-course prix fixe or a six- or nine-course tasting menu — and the walls are lined with post-modern works and even an original Andy Warhol.
