Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Set on the ground floor of the historic Hilton Orrington Hotel in the heart of downtown, this modern bistro has an airy, clean-lined design and a menu that focuses on local, seasonal dishes that are both innovative and approachable.
  • The North Shore Room boasts tons of natural light, thanks to rows of arched windows. Warm tones, blonde hardwood flooring, and vintage-inspired light fixtures add to the inviting vibe, and the space works equally well for a sit-down affair or casual cocktail gathering.
  • Intimate celebrations are perfect in The Pantry, the Bistro’s cozy private dining room. Guests can stay right upstairs at the Orrington—they can walk to all of Evanston’s top attractions, and are just a few miles from Chicago’s city center.
