Italian for "Beautiful Little Oven", Fornetto Mei is a Gold Coast favorite and the pride and culinary joy of The Whitehall Hotel. With intimate European décor and Midwest hospitality, Fornetto Mei provides a wondrous atmosphere, personalized service, and a unique dining experience. The restaurant offers a range of refreshing Italian fare, including beef Carpaccio, Berkshire pork pot stickers, and gourmet Milanese-style thin crust pizzas.
Mei means "beautiful" in Mandarin and sets the tone for this unique Asian dining experience located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast. Opened to the public in 2010, Mei's Corner prepares authentic Chinese cuisine with fresh, natural ingredients. Enjoy traditional, made-to-order Mandarin, Szechuan and Taiwanese delicacies.
Enjoy festive mixers and spirited elixirs at the Whitehall Place Lounge, a historic parlor that is ideal for intimate conversation amongst colleagues and friends, private receptions with special guests, and cocktail parties for any occasion. The bar has been restored to its 1920s grandeur and reportedly boasts the first liquor license after prohibition was lifted. Come take a load off where the Beatles-and countless other entertainers-raised their glasses in honor of the good times.
