The Lobby: Contemporary American Cuisine

Peninsula Chicago Shanghai Terrace Exterior


Select from a memorable Contemporary American menu featuring outstanding dishes in an environment that blends the classic understated elegance of The Lobby's décor. Take a table by the soaring 20 ft high floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Terrace. Breakfast is a favorite with both early-rising Chicago residents and hotel guests alike, who swear by starting the day with one of the many breakfast options, while The Lobby's approachable, yet American contemporary inspired à la carte is ideal for power lunches. 

The Lobby is open for in-person dining for breakfast and lunch daily from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, and dinner on Mondays & Tuesdays from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The Peninsula Chicago is abiding by all current Chicago COVID-19 recommendations.
