In a city with enough culinary genius to map out menu’s inspired from each and every place in the world, it’s rare to find an opening that is so highly anticipated that people are actually counting down until the doors open. This was the case with the incredible Bernie’s Lunch and Supper, which lived true to the hype. Though there are many Mediterranean inspired menu’s in the city, Bernie’s has something special.

The menu brings new flavors to classic dishes in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, an aspect that has been long awaited. While wooden tables and soft white light fixtures create a chic atmosphere in the lofty establishment, the strings of light hanging on the rooftop gives a reflection of the hospitable service and fun menu items. A perfect spot to pop into with friends, co-workers or a lucky date- Bernie’s offers service as respectable as the food.
