About The Evie
Led by a team of lifelong Chicago restaurant figures, The Evie is a locally-owned upscale dining destination located at the heart of the Magnificent Mile. Led by Partner George Archos (Wildberry Café), Chef-Partner Nick Nitti (Forno Rosso, Lucia Rose, Cucina 3 Italian), and Executive Chef Phil Rubino (Spiaggia, L2O, Cicchetti), the restaurant provides city locals and visitors a place to unwind and indulge while overlooking iconic Michigan Avenue. Named after George’s mother and daughter, the concept puts family at the forefront, with an emphasis on warm, Midwestern hospitality.
The Evie offers full lunch/dinner and weekend brunch service, presenting a menu of reimagined American classics and city favorites, spotlighting dishes like chef-crafted sushi rolls, freshly baked breads, Chicago-style Wagyu hotdogs, and USDA prime steaks. Complementing the menu, our dynamic beverage program weaves together seasonality and elegance, featuring an array of classic and craft cocktails, sake, beer, wine, and a selection of non-alcoholic options.
The space was thoughtfully designed by Aida Napoles, owner of Chicago-based AGN Design (Lost Larson, Forno Rosso/West Loop, La Josie, Del Toro). It highlights our open concept kitchen, charming bar space, and sprawling dining room adorned with curated sculptural works from fresh Chicago creatives, which guests are encouraged to observe and ask questions about.
To enhance the experience of all our guests we ask that you respect our dress code. We consider hats, tank tops, flip flops, and team athletic attire too informal for the dining experience we plan to provide. Your comfort is our priority; however, we do not feel that overly casual attire is appropriate for dining in our restaurant.
