Chicago’s restaurants are unparalleled. From famous deep dish pizzas to established culinary forces, the Windy City offers everyone’s palate the chance to taste something amazing. At Claudia, that’s especially true.

This gorgeous new restaurant is just an easy 5-minute walk from Catalyst. Claudia is more than a place to eat: it’s a showcase to modern fine dining at its most creative. Here’s what you need to know before making your first trip to Claudia:

About Claudia

Originally known as a fine-dining pop-up series, Claudia graduated to its new permanent location at 540 W. Madison Street with great fanfare. During its previous incarnation as a pop-up, the restaurant received virtually unceasing praise. The multi-course dinner menu is carefully curated. This is a labor of love for Chef Trevor Teich, a Chicago native who brings his experience working at some of the nation’s finest restaurants to every dish he prepares. 

About the Menu

For about $185, diners enjoy an exquisite tasting menu boasting ten courses, each meticulously prepared from the finest ingredients Chicago has to offer. The menu takes ample inspiration from the season itself—bright and cheery for springtime, sometimes rich in umami for colder weather. It’s BYOB (wine) and the menu is posted well ahead of time along with wine suggestions. This way, diners can choose their favorite wine according to preference.  

How to Book

Prepaid reservations can be made in advance for 1-4 persons at roughly $185 a head and with a corkage fee of $35. The restaurant accepts bookings from Thursday through Saturday. If you have dietary restrictions, be sure to reach out to the chef in advance. Each dining experience takes about 2.5 hours in total, so it’s best to make an evening of the experience and fully luxuriate in the renowned flavors on offer.
