As you're shown to your table, glass-enclosed wine racks containing our award-winning selections surround you. And that's only the beginning. A gourmet cornucopia awaits - superb wines, an outstanding international menu of cheeses, and a tasty host of handmade chocolate truffles and bars. When the weather warms, ENO offers a rare treat among Chicago wine tasting rooms – a vibrant outdoor patio. Take in fantastic views of the fireworks and Magnificent Mile scenery as you indulge in some of the world’s best wine, cheese & chocolate at our downtown Chicago hotel!
