Great dining and hospitality is coming back to Chicago once again. Chefs John & Karen Shields are excited to announce Smyth + The Loyalist will both reopen for indoor dining as allowed by Illinois Phase 4 regulations.

Smyth reservations are live on TOCK, for dine-in service beginning Thursday, July 9. The two Michelin-starred restaurant will offer one tasting menu experience to start, priced at $175 per person. There will be two seatings per night with a maximum of seven tables, available four nights a week, Thursday to Sunday. Smyth is the Jean Banchet Award winner for 2020 ‘Restaurant of The Year’ and Chefs John & Karen are currently finalists for the James Beard Award for 2020 ‘Best Chef: Great Lakes’.

The Loyalist is back open for limited dine-in seating as well, Wednesday through Sunday, with reservations available on TOCK. The new a la carte menu is also available on the sidewalk patio along Ada Street. Inspired by Paris brasseries, the menu reimagines a number of traditional French classics such as a Banh Mi Éclair with foie gras mousse and hazelnut butter and Parisienne Gnocchi with swiss chard, roasted yeast bechamel and nutmeg.

For fans who are still staying at home, takeout is still available for curbside pick-up, including the beloved Dirty Burg, on TOCK here and specials such as the Smyth picnic kit and brunch kit can be found here.
