Aria at Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park
Chicago, IL 60601
Hours: Sun-Thurs 6am-10pm; Fri-Sat 6am-10:30pm
At Aria, Executive Chef Brad Parsons and Chef Beverly Kim-Clark serve their special brand of Asian-accented, melting pot cuisine. And they employ (and consult) an international staff to execute Eastern updates to Western classics: you can order gnocchi with edamame, coconut polenta, and Thai bouillabaisse. For those who prefer an upbeat lounge to formal dining, Aria Bar and Sushi sets the mood for flirtatious cocktail imbibing and chopsticks play with a global sushi menu. The cuisine is only the beginning of the fun; both restaurants have an award-winning wine list.
