About Shallots Bistro
Shallots Bistro is a full service restaurant featuring elaborate lunch, dinner, and drink menus. Ranging from sushi and sandwiches to gourmet steaks, Shallots takes pride in being 100% Kosher and under the supervision of the Chicago Rabbinical Council (cRc).
Shallots Bistro’s succulent steaks are a prime example of timeless Bistro fare. Ranging from the classical, served with pommes frites and a red wine reduction, to the modern blackened and Patron marinated. Our lunch and bar menu features more traditional American fare, such as various burgers, wings, tenders, and wraps, while all soups and salads are house made. Making sure every dining experience ends on a warm note, we bake our signature ‘Black Hat’ molten chocolate cake just for you.
With an expansive dining room, amply-sized bar, and private dining areas, Shallots Bistro can accommodate nearly any size party. For the ultimate in-house dining experience, ask about our private Chef’s Table, an intimate experience featuring cuisine that is up to you entirely. Additionally, we offer off-site catering options that can be customized to your exact needs, whenever and wherever you’d like. The restaurant is yours to explore and indulge in, the chefs are there to quench your personalized cravings, and the staff is there to make your meal an experience to remember.
Shallots Bistro is not just Chicagoland’s premier Kosher restaurant, but rather, it’s a great restaurant that just so happens to be Kosher.
