CULINARY AESTHETIC MOVEMENT: 6 BEAUTIFUL CHICAGO RESTAURANTS

May 7, 2018

 

Eclectic and fanciful, Beatnik is 6,000 square feet of pure extravagance. The design was inspired by the bohemian lifestyle of 1950s America and Europe. Two-hundred one-of-a-kind pieces from around the globe fill the unconventional space, including an enormous Balinese carved teak façade, 15 massive crystal chandeliers salvaged from the ballroom of the Yamasaki-designed Century Plaza Hotel in LA, 20 restored 1970s cast iron “teardrop” Chicago street lamps, custom wall coverings, Egyptian carved wood doors, and a 1900s shop counter salvaged from the oldest general store in Illinois. Plus, over 400 live plants fill the space, giving an impression of lush exuberance.

The restaurant is divided into four main areas: A cocktail bar and lounge, the main dining room, a gorgeous indoor/outdoor garden and courtyard, and a semi-private dining space. “New American” dishes are created with the exotic spices and bright flavors of the Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia and Latin America.

“Guests will have worldly experiences every time they come, allowing them to travel to other countries through our menu,” says Chef Marcos Campos.
