The Darling - Chicago
A little bit of daring, and doing what isn’t expected, is a big part of what The Darling is all about. Says owner Huterstein, “The Darling is an elegant hideaway that offers both an intimate dining and cocktail experience on one floor, and a decadent lounge-like social club on the next.”
The ground Floor entryway is “hidden” behind a wall of flowers in what appears to be a flower shop. Currently, all the flowers are paper, but Huterstein says that they plan to sell real flowers from this “shop,” though it seems unlikely that they will be sold before the snow flies in Chicago.
Chef James Martin, previously of A10, told us that what sets The Darling apart is “The balance of excellent service, food, cocktails and a wide range of entertainment. People will see right away how beautifully different The Darling is from anything else in the city.”
