Steadfast brings an innovative, ultra-seasonal, chef-driven restaurant concept from The Fifty/50 Group to The Kimpton Gray Hotel. Through collaboration between Executive Chef Christopher Davies and Executive Pastry Chef Christopher Teixeira, an adventurous menu blends seasonality and creativity with balanced characteristics of the two talented chefs. New American cuisine with Mediterranean and Portuguese influences reflects the cultural diversity of the chef partners, offering beautifully composed dishes to food savvy hotel guests as well as Chicago’s passionate dining community.
Steadfast’s focal point - the exhibition kitchen, invites guests from every seat in the house to personally connect with the culinary team, and houses a wood-fired rotisserie, shaved ice crudo bar, and charcuterie room. A tasting room boasting a 14 seat pre-ticketed chef’s table allows for a personalized, interactive adventure and can be reserved in its entirety or shared for a communal experience.
The intimate space showcases a bold design, welcoming diners to a comfortably rustic, yet gracefully styled dining room. Reflecting the historical building’s classic revival style architecture, Steadfast integrates restoration of original elements with custom-built components.
Along with a global wine program, The Fifty/50 Group’s Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller, one of Chicago’s most respected mixologists, incorporates the regional flavors of the cuisine throughout the cocktail program.
