Waldorf Astoria Chicago Debuts Pop-Up Dining Concept

CHICAGO—The Waldorf Astoria Chicago has announced the arrival of The Kitchen at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago, an elevated pop-up dining concept serving three meals a day, offered through 2016. Located on the third floor of the hotel, the restaurant will feature a menu curated by Chef Nicholas Marino that complements the flavors and notes found in champagne.

“The concept is a natural extension of our hotel’s culinary program,” says Marlene Poynder, general manager of the Waldorf Astoria Chicago. “It celebrates our commitment to creating distinct, quality-driven and unforgettable moments. We’re thrilled to have this exciting addition at our hotel.”

The restaurant will serve a variety of light-to-hearty dishes paired with contemporary, seasonally focused favorites. “The menu combines flavors from my Italian heritage with classic French cooking techniques,” says Marino. “Our goal is to always create unassuming dishes with uncompromised quality and tastes.”
