Finishing up my posts from my recent trip to Chicago, I present a couple of chill places my traveling companions and I slipped into for a nightcap.

FF: The Windsor

First up is The Windsor, a little gem of a place tucked in a corner in Streeterville just a block off Michigan Ave. I first found The Windsor last year and found it to be the perfect place to meet up for a drink – or dinner – but we went for the drinks. Quiet yet active, nice setting, and great service.

About The Windsor:

“The Windsor is your neighborhood restaurant in a downtown locale, welcoming guests to sit back relax and enjoy a casual dining experience just off the hustle of the Magnificent Mile. Chef Todd Stein”s inventive romp through a classic American Bar and Grill features fresh seafood, hearty entree salads, amazing steaks, delicious chops, and mouth-watering prime rib from the rotisserie. The Windsor will bring a sense of comfort and friendly service for which the neighborhood restaurants of 4-Star Restaurant Group are known to Streeterville. Dressed up or dressed down, come in, sit back and let us take care of the rest.”

The Windsor is located at 160 East Huron in the great city that is Chicago.

FF: Bijan’s Bistro

Meanwhile, a few blocks west in the River North area you can find plenty of places to go for a drink or dinner, but a really cool place for late night eats and drinks is Bijan’s Bistro.

Bijan’s Bistro is a lively yet civilized joint on a busy city corner. If it is a nice evening, you can sit in the outdoor seating area and watch the city go by.

About Bijan’s Bistro:

“Bijan’s Bistro is open 365 days a year til 4am! Breakfast lunch and dinner every day and the best late-late-night dining in the city.”

Bijan’s Bistro is located at 663 N. State St. in the very cool city of Chicago, USA.
