Walking Distance to all the Happening
Let’s be real, some meals are just a pregame to all the fun to be had in the Loop.
Near the Chicago Riverwalk is Ocean Prime, an award-winning Modern American restaurant and lounge. After devouring their Surf’N’Turf with a cocktail or two, take an afternoon stroll along the Riverwalk or schedule an Architecture Boat Tour.
