If Gold Coasters need a chill escape from the craziness surrounding Rush and Division, they have a new option inside the former Hotel Indigo. The space is now known as Claridge House and the name change comes with a $9 million renovation including a new restaurant: Juniper Spirits & Oysters. The restaurant opened today at 1244 N. Dearborn Parkway.
The dining room seats 48 people and there is space for 45 in the lobby with 24 more seats on the sidewalk patio. The renovations are meant to preserve the 95-year-old building.
The all-day restaurant will eventually serve weekend brunch. Oysters, flatbreads, and modern American fare fill the menu. The bar will serve food until late night.
Take a look at the space and food below. Juniper is now open.
Juniper Spirits & Oysters, 1244 N. Dearborn Parkway, (312) 787-4980, open 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Monday to Sunday for breakfast; all-day menu from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday; open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Froday and Saturday; bar open 11 a.m. until late daily.
