Select Local Merchants

  • Paramount Room
    Fashioned out of an old speakeasy, Paramount Room still exudes the weary cool of its jazz age predecessor. However, chef Stephen Dunne also keeps his kitchen refreshingly with the times, crafting a menu of pub-inspired seasonal eats that earned the restaurant a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand rating and the praise of local gourmands at Chicago Magazine, Centerstage, and Daily Candy. Small plates of chilled oysters and steak tartare encourage sociable sharing, and entrees of cider-braised lamb shank, buttermilk fried chicken, and a bacon-wrapped filet embody new twists on old favorites. True to its origins, Paramount Room also houses a top-notch bar, where resident beverage manager Jacquie Armanetti and her team preside over a tap list of ever-rotating craft beers, suggest pairings from an extensive wine list and sling cocktails inspired by both Prohibition favorites and more modern mixology.

  • La Scarola
    La Scarola: A User's Guide Fresh, old-school Italian cuisine served in a bustling eatery that's a favorite among celebrities. Sample Menu Appetizer: escarole and beans sautéed in garlic and oil Pasta: vegetarian-friendly pasta primavera Entree: chicken vesuvio with potatoes, peas, and wine-garlic sauce Dessert: pistachio gelato While You're Waiting According to the Chicago Sun-Times, La Scarola has become a popular haunt for famous folks, ranging from Johnny Depp to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Scour the celebrity photos on the walls and try to guess the exact athlete, actor, or musician that warmed the seat before you sat in it. Keep your eyes peeled for camera crews. TV shows such as The Mob Doctor have filmed here, and they would love to hear your plot ideas in detail. Try identifying some of the nontraditional ingredients—such as chipotle or jalapeño—that Chef Armando Vasquez tosses into the dishes as an homage to his native Mexico. Inside Tips Show up hungry. La Scarola is known for its huge portions. Reservations are recommended. Vocab Lesson Escarole: a type of endive with broad, pale leaves and a less-bitter taste. It's a good source of fiber and vitamins A and K. Arrabbiata: an Italian red sauce with a spicy kick that typically comes from crushed red peppers.

  • Carnivale
    Carnivale: A User's Guide Pan-Latin cuisine and cocktails served in a frenetic, wildly colorful space and accompanied by energetic Latin music. Sample Menu Cocktail: one of the famed mojitos Cold starter: chunky guacamole Hot starter: ropa vieja with sweet plantains and queso fresco Entree: steak arrachera served with bacon sofrito and chimichurri Where to Sit: A spot near the grand central staircase provides prime views of all the action without drowning out your tablemates' conversation. When to Go: Stop in on a Wednesday or Thursday evening, when live Latin music lures diners to the dance floor. While You're Waiting Try to estimate how many tomato plants could fit on Carnivale's roof. (Chef Rodolfo Cuadros also grows ghost peppers, cumin, and lettuce up there.) Even if you're not imbibing, spend some time with the drink menu—you'll come away with a basic education in tequila, cachaca, and rum. Vocab Lesson Ropa vieja: Spanish for "old clothes," this dish is much more tender than its name suggests. It's made by simmering shredded flank steak in a piquant tomato broth. Caipirinha: a Brazilian cocktail made with the sugar-cane-based spirit cachaca and lime. While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Learn some steps for the dance floor with a class at Latin Rhythms Academy of Dance & Performance (210 N. Racine). After: Keep the clubby vibe going by heading over to the Mid (306 N. Halsted Street), a venue known for hosting some of the city's hottest DJs. If You Can't Go, Try: A similar mix of upscale Latin eats, drinks, and dancing reigns at Nacional 27 (325 W. Huron Street).
