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 and dinners.


The Lobby is now open for dinner seven days per week. Enjoy specialties from the refined Contemporary American menu, as well as live piano music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
