Events: Winter Lobby Eats at The Peninsula Chicago

Last week, I was invited to try the new holiday menu at the Lobby Restaurant located in the Peninsula Chicago Hotel. I’ve never been to the Peninsula for dining before so I was super excited to see what the restaurant had in store!

I literally starved myself all day in anticipation of this meal and The Lobby didn’t disappoint! We started off the evening sipping wine and mingling with the other guests! After a few short introductions we were seated at the table for more wine and conversation. The night was already off to a good start!

My first dish was the Heirloom Carrot Salad…

This salad was delicious it contained: Bulghur Wheat, Raisins and Greek Yogurt! The Heirloom Carrot Salad was unlike any salad I’ve ever had!

Next on the menu was the Roasted Sea Scallops…

Simply put these were some of the best scallops, I’ve ever tasted! I think I told at least 10 people about these scallops this weekend alone!  I’ve never had scallops paired with cauliflower and golden raisins! It really was the dish that kept on giving, the flavors really just bursted in your mouth! While, I didn’t select the Roasted Chicken, I heard nothing but good things from guests at the table!

How beautiful is the roasted chicken? The chef brought it out so we could see how they serve it at The Lobby. While, I’m so sad I didn’t get to stay for desert; I did have an amazing time!

Not only was the food delicious but the ambiance was amazing!

During the dinner we also learned that the Pennisula will be opening up an ice skating rink this holiday season, so be on the look out for that!

I also hear the spa there is amazing, I will have to try it one day!

Thanks Peninsula Chicago for extending the invite, the food was amazing!
