Recommendations near Westin River North


I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants within walking distance from the Westin River North located on North Dearborn. Just curious what is in that area that I should check out. I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks

  1. The Westin River North is at 320 North Dearborn, just north of the Chicago River. That's within walking distance of not only River North, but also Michigan Avenue and the entire Loop - the biggest concentration of mid-priced and higher restaurants in the city. Within two blocks (less than 5 minutes walk), you've got:

    Uno's and Due at Ohio and Wabash (pan pizza) -
    Catch 35 (seafood) -
    Brasserie Jo (French bistro) -
    Naha (contemporary American) -
    Shaw's Crab House (seafood) -
    Frontera Grill and Topolobampo (creative Mexican) -
    Bin 36 (wine) -

    Within a 15 minute walk, you've got literally hundreds of restaurants, including many of our best in all categories. If there are specific types of food you're looking for, let us know and we can recommend something nearby.

    1. A Mano is under Bin 36. It is modern Italian. They had a wonderful whole fish on Friday. It is a little sterile but it was pleasant. Keefers is not too far away and has a variety of steaks and fish.
