Good for small parties and tables for larger groups. A little dimmer than expected, so pretty good for an early-date spot or catching up with a group of friends before a night out. Delisious selection of many Asian styles to satisfy everyone. Lively wall-art reminds of Katsushika Hokusai's wave depiction!

Overall, the food was delicious. It is very hard to eat chicken and waffles though with bone in chicken and my waffle was cold when it came out. The short ribs and appetizers, hummus and flatbread were really tasty. The burger and fries were good too. The ambience was nice, but a little strange being open inside a hotel.

About the restaurant
We like to say that we are International Vegan Restaurant. That means our food is 100% plant based and Globally Inspired. We have a few American classics like homemade veggie burgers, mac and cheese and of course Nachos. However, we also have plenty of healthy options. Our Kitchen Manager specializes in creating comfort dishes from different cultures by making food that is hearty and flavorful, but still healthy. Many food items will have a focus on plants, rather than trying to mimic meat. Reading our menu is like traveling the globe with the different options we will have. Have a taste of Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Italy, Balkans and so much more! Brunch Menu is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We were nominited for the best brunch in the country by VegOut Magazine and our soup was nominated as Best Soup of Chicago. We won Best Patio 2020 by North Commision. Can't wait to welcome you.
