ETA Restaurant + Bar: A tavern for today’s travelers, welcoming guests with rustic American fare and Midwestern warmth. 

Paying homage to Chicago’s rich history of hosting travelers from across the globe, ETA Restaurant + Bar welcomes visitors and locals alike as they dine in a warm, wood-ensconced dining room that captures the essence of Chicago’s first and finest inns and taverns. 

Our experienced, talented culinary team has developed a menu that serves up locally sourced, seasonally inspired dishes, pulling inspiration from rustic meals of the past with an elevated spin of today.  

ETA’s cocktails are not only delicious, but also pay tribute to the bustling railway transportation era of yesteryear. With flavors reminiscent of the cocktail culture of the early 1900s, refined for today’s palette, the beverage program offers beautifully crafted concoctions sure to bring the golden era of travel to life. 

We have two private dining rooms that offer unique settings for private breakfasts, lunches, receptions and dinners - Pullman and The Dining Car. Each room can accommodate up to 50 guests in a warm, welcoming environment with family-style menus that are designed to bring people together and to inspire interaction and conversation.
