The Best Private Dining Rooms
We check out dozens of private rooms at restaurants in Chicago's downtown, River North, Gold Coast and Randolph Market District neighborhoods to identify the top spots for intimate business meals. This year we updated last year's batch and added 32 new spots. We looked to balance traditional and trendy, refined and rustic, blow-out and budget-conscious. Food and beverage minimums don't include tax or tip. All are wheelchair-accessible, unless noted. By Anne Moore and Anne Spiselman
