Description: Located in the heart of Chicago's River North, Paris Club brings classically-inspired French fare to a lively, vivacious neighborhood. French Chef Jean Joho teamed with restaurateurs RJ and Jerrod Melman to bring new energy to the French bistro. An entire section of the menu has been dedicated to shellfish, showcasing freshly shucked oysters, stone crab claws and the three tiered “Grand Plateau” which is piled high with an array of chilled seafood. Steeped in tradition, dishes like Duck à l’Orange and Coq au Vin have been reinvented and are featured in a modern expression of the “Plat du Jour.” Following in the spirit of the dinner menu, Paris Club's cocktail and wine list pay homage to Old World classics while showcasing New World interpretations. Paris Club is the perfect blend of traditional French bistro in a modern Chicago setting--it's the next best thing to flying all the way to Paris.

“Fun, good vibe”

We set in the lounge area. nice atmosphere, good music. Had only drinks and did not go to the club itself.
Service was very friendly and good. It was nice to have few drinks after dinner.

“Fun Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Paris Club is a place I reccommend. The food is very good. The staff is polite and attentive. The wait can be long (even with a reservation) But it is worth it.

“Hip and cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Walk into the Paris Club and you are transported to the land of the cool people. Low lighting and dark tones this place feels intimate but the open floor plan makes it comfortable for families too. Food is great although I miss the old tapas style menu it had in the Fall. The wine we ordered wasn't chilled but they promptly brought a bucket to chill it down. Overall great place for a couples dinner, girls night out or for a drink at the bar

“A Touch of France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We met for a casual business dinner. We had an ice selection of appetizers that we shared. The lobster biscetta was very good. We had the ravioli, scallops, mussels and Dover sole for our main courses. The helpings were moderate, yet presented beautifully. For dessert we shared several selection....the apple crisp was fantastic.
The bar area seemed to have a good crowd that grew as the night got later. In the bar area, there were several TVs broadcasting local sporting events. Overall I felt the restaurant was very good and would visit again.

“Always a winner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We at at Paris Club twice when we were in Chicago in March. We went back to Chicago in January and went to the Paris Club our first night in town. This place is consistently excellent. We always enjoy it. We had pretzel croissants - please order them. You won't be sorry! We had the charcuterie platter which is always so good. The foie gras mousse was decadent, lick your chops wonderful! We also had an amazing frisee salad with bacon & a poached egg. I can't say enough good things about this place. Make sure you have a reservation on weekends.
