Residing within Michigan Avenue's famed Carbide & Carbon building is a stylish and modern French restaurant, serving classic French fare with a contemporary twist. Through a unique dining experience crafted with passion and precision by Executive Chef Marcel Heiduk, guests are transported to the bustling brasseries that define the Parisian lifestyle...
This is Venteux.
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.
You'll find all the iconic French cuisine - steak frites, whole roasted duck, oysters flown in from the coast daily - but also encounter unique flavors, get to know our take on escargot, and rethink your idea of classic French onion soup. 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.
