Description: The Pump Room restaurant offers reasonably priced, delicious favorites in a relaxed, comfortable, and exciting environment. The new food concept was created by world-renowned chef and 2011 James Beard award winner Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Original Pump Room menu classics were reinvented and recreated by Jean-Georges providing his special touch and amazing style. He will support local purveyors, regional flavors and offer a “farm to table” experience. At night, the restaurant's bar transforms into a supper club recapturing the glamour of the 30's and 40's with a modern twist. Offerings include late night tapas style small plates as well as local, domestic and international draught and bottled beer; exotic, specialty cocktails by our own mixologist, and great music.

Walking into Pump Room, inside Public House Hotel, is like walking into a very elegant and modern living room. The atmosphere is cozy and chic at the same time, with gorgeous bubble-shaped lights hanging down at varying levels. On a Sunday evening the vibewas a little more laid-back and casual, but I can definitely see a very upscale crowd gathering here on other nights. Drinks were delightful - I had the Basil Jalepeno Margarita, as was all the food. Share a few appetizers, including flatbreads, calamari or ravioli, but save room for an entree as well. You won't be disappointed! Throughout the evening, service was wonderful. Everyone was attentive and eager to make sure our experience was great. Wonderful evening all around!

One of the best meals I have ever had. Do the tasting menu with wine. It was a good value and the food was fantastic. Loved the Meyer lemon pasta and the short ribs.

Wonderful decor, retro and hip, speaks about how unique Chicago is to have these places that you won't find much in the US anymore - and, they are packed with people

Go for the atmosphere and then be blown away by the food. A little pricey..yes.., but this celebrity hangout of times gone by will make you want to light up a smoke and put your arms around a few beautiful women! (of course it's non smoking, but you can pretend).
