The Best Chicago Date Restaurants, According To Local Industry Greats

October 14, 2018

The Windy City is known for many things — pizza, hot dogs, and inclement weather among them —but when it comes to planning the perfect date, your neighborhood deep dish spot just might not cut it. That’s why we’ve asked a few of Chicago’s crème de la crème of the restaurant biz to weigh in on their go-to places for a romantic tête-à-tête over some of the best food and drink around. Your date will thank you.

 

Black Bull

“I love Spanish food and sherry,” shares Benjamin Wood, Bar Director at Beatnik, home to the most coveted reservation in Chicago right now. “There’s no better place to find delicious tapas and an endless selection of sherry than Black Bull. I especially like to share both of these things with someone who may not be as familiar, so it’s a great way to introduce your date to something new. It’s also easy to pop upstairs after dinner to the speakeasy bar, Bordel, to catch a live jazz or burlesque show.”

 

Beatnik

Wood pays homage to his home turf, and we don’t blame him. “I am clearly biased, but damn…Beatnik is just such a fun, upbeat, and a beautiful space. Chef Marcos [Campos] is über-talented, we have some great cocktails and wine, and it exudes all the vibes. You can bring a date for drinks at the bar, after-work bites in the courtyard, or a nicer dinner in the main dining room.”
