Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of modern American fare at Chicago Fire Oven and Visibility Bar inside the Crowne Plaza O'Hare in Rosemont.
Distinguished by its blazing open stone oven, Chicago Fire Oven and Visibility Bar crafts an inventive and flame-licked menu of modern American fare. Hungry mouths can peruse a variety of hearty entrees, soups, salads, and burgers before ordering the white pizza ($8.95 for an 8”; $16.50 for a 14”) to experience a balance of fire-infused pizza crust, arugula, italian sausage, and ricotta, provolone, and mozzarella cheeses. Cedar-planked salmon ($17.95) is accented with lemon-laced caper-dill aioli, and a juicily marinated and char-grilled half chicken ($15.50) takes up residence on a brick beside lime-cilantro jus.
Visibility Bar is located adjacent to Chicago Fire Oven and hosts a panoply of libations behind a sleek and speckled stone bar. Patrons can sip signature cocktails ($10 each)—such as the lip-puckering green appletini—or quaff draft beers ($5.50–$6.50 each) while chatting or gazing upon an army of 55" HDTVs. Chicago Fire Oven and Visibility Bar also provides two hours of complimentary validated parking so patrons will not have to bring their cars in with them. Located near the Rosemont Theatre, both are convenient locales for dinner and drinks after a show.
