Situated within the grounds of Lincoln Park, at the edge of a pond overlooking the dramatic Chicago skyline, North Pond can easily claim the loveliest setting in the city. The structure that houses North Pond was originally built in 1912 as a warming shelter for ice skaters, and has been redesigned according to the Arts and Crafts tradition.
The Arts and Crafts ideal is also found throughout North Pond’s culinary style. Drawing inspiration from the local market, Chef Tim Vidrio and his team utilize exceptional ingredients at the height of their season. North Pond supports small local farmers, growers and producers and treats their products with respect and care in the kitchen. The path from earth to plate remains clear and our cuisine reflects the decor of the dining room – complex layers of subtle craft beneath a simple decorative style.
