The Sarah and Peer Pedersen RoomWest Loop
This reservation-only American eatery slated for a Sept. 30 opening in the Civic Opera House offers prix-fixe meals before each performance by Lyric Opera of Chicago during the regular season. Meals consist of a green salad, assorted breads and raw vegetables, three savory courses (choose from four) and dessert to finish. The street-level space echoes the Art Deco motif of the opera house with a warm gold and red palette, plush booths and a striking back bar. The restaurant is only open to ticket holders.
