CURRENT Restaurant Review

: Come for the front-row views of Lake Michigan and fresh spins on Italian favorites. Located on the Living Level of the W Chicago Lakeshore hotel, CURRENT has a contemporary vibe that reflects its swank surroundings. As for the menu, expect plenty of pizza, handmade pastas and seafood dishes with a twist. Local ingredients are utilized wherever possible, evident in the dessert selection of Black Dog Gelato. Also of note is the restaurant’s assortment of original cocktails. Concoctions like the Blackberries Smashed & Savory (Bulleit Rye, blood orange, lemon and blackberries) taste closer to a juice drink than booze. A selection of fortified wine is available, in the form of sherry, Merlot and more.
