Located adjacent to Kimpton's Hotel Monaco Chicago, South Water Kitchen resides in what used to be called the South Water Market district, where the city received and distributed the fresh produce that arrived from around the country. In acknowledgement of the area’s market history, Chef Waysok personally buys his produce and meats directly from a host of local purveyors to create menus that are always seasonally fresh. His recipes are based on the classic Midwestern recipes he grew up on: Braised Durham Ranch Buffalo Shank, Bourbon Braised Pork Belly, and succulent Grilled Rabbit Sausage—plus a vast selection of delicious, fully gluten-free options at every meal of the day (cocktails, too!). In the tavern, it’s happy hour all day, every day, with daily specials on drinks and bar bites. And on a clear Chicago day, nothing beats a spot on our coveted outdoor patio, where the people-watching is unparalleled. Won’t you join us?
