Cherry Circle Room

Modern American

  • 93

Cherry Circle Room is a refined cocktail bar and restaurant in the striking Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. Garnering a James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurant Design, this sophisticated spot is finished with polished dark woods and tufted leather seating, while apron-wearing staff serve seasonal fare like lacquered duck atop foie gras tortelloni, bone-in roasted pork chop with scarlet runner beans or poached langoustines. The wraparound bar pours Midwestern and Belgian craft beers, French and American wines and a spirits menu centered on Scotch and American whiskeys in cocktails like the Fedora (bourbon, rum, Cognac, curacao, lemon).
