Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, one of Chicago’s fastest-growing family-owned restaurant groups, is opening two new restaurants in New Eastside at 363 E. Wacker Dr.
These restaurants will sit within the St. Regis Hotel, an upcoming luxury hotel occupying 11 lower floors of the Lake Shore East tower, expected to open in Spring 2023. Although the name’s of these restaurants have not been revealed, Magellan Development Group is partnering with Lettuce Entertain You to bring these restaurants to life next year, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The first restaurant, a Japanese restaurant, will open when St. Regis does, while the other restaurant, a Tuscan steakhouse, will follow later next year.
Lettuce Entertain You has proved itself this year as one of the hottest hospitality groups in Chicagoland, announcing a west-coast style eatery in West Loop and a members-only club in River North. Other restaurants in this group’s portfolio include Wildfire, Beatrix, Aba, Big Bowl, RPM Steak, and many more. The to-be-named Japanese restaurant will sit on the 11th floor with chef Hisanobu Osaka running the kitchen. On the second floor, the Tuscan steakhouse will be a collaboration with Los Angeles chef Evan Funke, who operates Mother Wolf in Los Angeles.
“Lettuce Entertain You knows how to deliver the exceptional luxury dining experiences and compelling cuisine that is expected by The St. Regis Chicago guests, visitors, and residents,” J.R. Berger, a principal at Magellan, said in the statement.
