Oriole Michelin Restaurant
Finally, the exquisite Michelin star luxury restaurant in Chicago, Oriole, offers an extended tasting menu. These offerings are presented by Executive Chef & Owner Noah Sandoval and Pastry Chef & Partner Genie Kwon. Since everything about Oriole is interactive and stimulating, dishes give guests a thought-inducing and collective experience. For that reason, dinner at Oriole is the absolute focal point of the evening. The restaurant offers seating for 28 in a sophisticated dining room shared with an open kitchen. Not only is Oriole one of the many Michelin Star Restaurants in Chicago, it is consequently a Jean Banchet award-winner.
Welcome to one of Chicago’s greatest restaurants. The interior is mod yet industrial, with an open kitchen—filled with jovial professionals who look like they’re cooking for a dinner party—that takes up a good deal of the space. The fact that nothing feels stuffy should not surprise, since Oriole is something of a family business. Crisp attention to detail is clear from every member of this team, who are all thoroughly versed in the intricacies of the rather complex menu.
Oriole’s tasting menu is stimulating and utterly contemporary; borderless with its interweaving of global flavors. It all begins with a cavalcade of delicate small bites: Aged hamachi with fresh wasabi and truffle honey shows a fascinating sweetness. Maine uni with yuzu kosho and puffed rice has fantastic crunch. A single crab shumai bobs in a soothing kabocha and ginger broth. Caraway cappellini is paired with a rich yeast butter, puffed wheat, and shaved black truffle for a heady dish. Desserts offer a tempting array from a celery-pistachio financier and guava Danish to sweet potato cheesecake and peppermint-dark chocolate bon bon.
Oriole thinks of everything; there is even a non-alcoholic beverage pairing on offer. Intimate, high-end kitchen serving an extended New American tasting menu in a stylish space. Our chefs offer an extended tasting menu at a cost of $215 per guest. The menu is not inclusive of gratuity, tax, or your choice of beverage.
