Description: Travelle Kitchen + Bar features a contemporary interpretation of Seasonal American cuisine. Drawing inspiration from the country's rich culinary history, the kitchen takes guests on a culinary journey that includes ingredients from the finest farms, ranches and orchards in the nation. We combine the region's most unique flavors to deliver an intriguing dining experience. The restaurant features interiors created by renowned designer David Rockwell, showcasing the pure lines of Mies van der Rohe's modern architecture. Travelle's Wine Room offers a tasting table for up to 10 people and also can serve as an intimate semi-private dining room. The contemporary main dining area features a chef's table and seating for up to 125 guests as well as a glass-enclosed show kitchen, allowing guests to enjoy a culinary performance. Occupying a corner of the building, Travelle's window-framed bar is ideal for pre-dinner drinks or late-night cocktails. While its leather-upholstered seating and ebony accents suggest old-world charm, the richly patterned stone floor and distinctive spun-brass pendant ceiling present cutting-edge design. The adjoining lounge, overlooking the Chicago River, features panoramic cityscape and skyline views. A 30-foot digital artwork lines the lounge wall while midcentury-inspired furniture recalls the era of classic cocktail culture.

“Mies ? Yes Please!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Went here with my husband for his birthday - we're both fans of Mies van der Rohe (especially the IBM building) and thought it would be fun to eat inside of it for his birthday! Not to mention views of Marina City (another favorite of ours)

Not only was the setting perfect but the food was wonderful! Everything was delicious & the service was great! The staff was attentive but not overbearing, timely and very helpful.

It is a little pricey but for a nice night out it isn't so bad really. They give you very good sized - perhaps even large - portions for the meals as well.

I would recommend for a nice, classy, dining experience inside a lovely & historic building on the Chicago River.

“Upscale Mediterranean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Our meals were superb. The waiter was so helpful. I didn't know the wines but when I told him the wines I do like, he suggested a wonderful Spanish white. The food was Mediterranean taken to a new, creative level, I loved the veal shank. Don't moss the pita "ball"

“Outstanding place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

The service is outstanding, the food good, and the whole place is just so pleasant to sit at. Travelle is located in iconic Mies van der Rohe building, so check this Bauhaus classic while having your dinner.

“Great meal. Will definitely go back... One block off Magnificent mile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We visited on the recommendation of friends. Its on the second floor of a very nice boutique hotel - the Langham. The entry way and scene of the restaurant is modern and attractive. We had a terrific meal and experience. My wife and two daughters (9 and 6) were impressed and will definitely go back. The Seafood tower is a must. Carlos, our waiter, was exceptional...

“Unique menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Loved the menu....provided menu choices from different locations, therefore different tastes and spices. Service was excellent. Restaurant was very busy on a Friday night so it was a little noisy for my liking. But the food and service more than made up for it. Highly recommended restaurant.
