Named one of The 10 Best New Restaurants in the country upon opening by GQ Magazine The Bristol has helped shape the Chicago hospitality scene since 2008 as a neighborhood staple. Chef Larry Feldmeier has recently taken the reins with an evolved vision of The Bristol’s cuisine.The food is deliberately created, packed with flavor and unpretentious. The menu is a hybrid of classic and contemporary based in French techniques but remains New American with farm-fresh produce and rooted in Midwest sensibilities.
The Bristol wine program is built on a foundation of producers that are the benchmarks for their regions and styles of winemaking, while also focusing on the new generation of producers who’ve taken the baton and are re-shaping their regions historic styles. This philosophy trickles down to every element of The Bristol’s ‘Nouveau/Classic’ beverage program. From redefined classic cocktails to classic euro beer styles done in American palate. The goal is that the beverage program is as “New American” as the food.
The Bristol’s second floor features a spacious private room built for any number of events, from business dinners to wedding receptions. Your experience at The Bristol will be met with a smile, warmed with hospitality, and filled with great food and drink.
