Thank You

We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

The Aviary

$$$$
 in  West Loop
Written by

For Chicago, The Aviary in the West Loop is the special occasion cocktail bar. It’s from the same owners as Alinea, and you’ll find elaborate, Alinea-esque drinks on the menu here. Cocktails start around $28, and vary in the amount they look like science experiments. For example, The Jungle Bird has little clear tapioca-like balls filled with rum that pop in your mouth, and the Old Fashioned goes even further - it comes in a ball of ice you need to snap with a rubber band. You can make reservations, but you can also walk in (there might be a wait, but that will give you some time to quickly reread your eighth grade science textbook).

You'll need a better browser for that!
