A Breath of French Air

Welcome to Venteux. A glowing brasserie sitting alongside the Magnificent Mile, lit from within by cozy banquettes, indoor and outdoor café style seating, stunning 40-foot floor to ceiling windows and an intimate private dining room for special celebrations. A comforting menu of French classics such as steak frites, French onion soup and escargots is accented by a fresh raw bar, caviar and fruit de mer menu, all served alongside a spirited offering of handcrafted cocktails, fine wines and a carefully curated champagne selection.

Venteux Café

A dramatic sanctuary located steps from Michigan Avenue, the romantic interior of Venteux’s intimate café area boasts a whimsical color palette of sage green, cream and terracotta with design accents such as an oversized brass pendant light, delicate moldings, speckled gold antique mirrors and floral textiles incorporated throughout. Sunlight cascades through soaring 40-foot windows, while lush botanical murals cover the walls to create a romantic atmosphere for daytime dining and drinking. Guests are invited to settle into one of the café’s plush velvet booths or marble-topped tables indoors or soak up the energy of the city al fresco on the picturesque patio, which draws inspiration from the lively cafés of Southern France.

Chefsgiving, a cocktail hour with canapes and a four-course Thanksgiving-inspired meal with wine pairings presented presented by Pendry Chicago and Venteux in partnership with local non-profit organization Chicago Chefs Cook, whose mission is to unify the chef community of Chicago in providing humanitarian relief to those in need. Founded by a star-studded lineup of chefs and industry giants, they’ve recently raised funds for crisis relief in Maui, Syria and Ethiopia by bringing together some of the city’s most notable chefs for charity dinners. The beneficiary of Chefsgiving is the Pilsen Food Pantry on the city’s Lower West Side, supporting their “New Migrant Program” which helps individuals immigrating to Chicago with shelter, food, clothing and healthcare resources.
