Dinner at the W Lakeshore

July 24, 2014

Last week the W Lakeshore hosted a dinner party for a few of Chicago’s leading fashion influencers to introduce the glittering $40 million renovation. As the only hotel on Lake Michigan, the views are breathtaking at every level, even at the first floor restaurant CURRENT. I was thankful for the opportunity to kick back, relax and enjoy a decadent 15-course meal courtesy of Chef Gregory Elliot with a few of my favorite girls.




The W Lakeshore was completely redesigned from top to bottom with brand-new gilded interiors as luxe as they are welcoming, along with the new restaurant CURRENT. The views of the lake are so stunning that it looks like you’re dining at the oceanfront. The breeze rolls in from across Lake Michigan, lending a luxurious freshness to the atmosphere that I’ve never felt anywhere else in Chicago. It truly does feel like you’re on the beach!




From polenta fries to an incredible seafood medley, every single dish was phenomenal. The dessert included a tiramisu that’s simply divine, and gourmet cookies as a perfect finishing touch. I have never left a dinner party so full that my hunger was sated for 24 hours until the following night. The dent in my diet was well worth it for an evening full of delicious food and delightful conversation.
