Reminiscent of a day when the kitchen table was the cornerstone of American cooking...
Established in Midwest comfort cuisine, craft beers and wine, Chicago native Chef Roger Waysok gives South Water Kitchen a fresh approach to the rich history and diversity that is Chicago. Located in the Loop on the south bank of the Chicago River, adjacent to the Hotel Monaco, South Water Kitchen is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and evening drinks.
Stop in for a bite before or after a performance at one of the nearby Theater District venues or while shopping on nearby State Street and the Magnificent Mile. In addition to the restaurant we feature a full bar with a Tavern-Bistro style menu and seasonal patio dining perfect for the traveler, well-seasoned foodies, groups, and families alike.
South Water Kitchen features artfully created Chicago comfort foods with a modern touch. Our cuisine celebrates and renews the American heritage that built Chicago and brings it to today's table with locally grown meats and produce, regionally crafted beers and spirits, and bountiful helping of friendly Midwest hospitality.
