South Water Kitchen
An Original Amongst Chicago Loop Restaurants

We'd like to introduce you to a true Chicago native. South Water Kitchen is a Midwestern son born on the southern banks of the Chicago River. Here you'll enjoy the comforting appeal of a friendly restaurant and relaxed tavern that casually caters to Loop locals and visitors alike. Outside, Chicago's streets bustle with a vibrancy that is distinctly Windy City. Inside South Water Kitchen, theatergoers, business folks and out-of-towners settle in and enjoy Executive Chef Roger Waysok's sumptuous creations. These are menus that don't require a foreign language degree, but do require a hearty appetite and the desire for truly delicious dishes. The Tavern, too, serves up a creative array of crafted cocktails, beers, wine and other informal edibles.

Located next to Hotel Monaco Chicago, South Water Kitchen is Chicago, through and through. Let us introduce you.
