We invite you to Chicago's newest brasserie, cafe and oyster bar, set at the very heart of all that the city has to offer. Venteux's cuisine strikes a delicate balance between the classic and the unexpected, which you'll notice both on the menu, and in the presentation of each dish.

Regardless of your preference for the tried and true classics or the element of surprise, every dish features only the freshest ingredients, and receives every ounce of our attention from the time we take and prepare your order, to the moment it's served to you.
