Voted “Chicago’s best restaurant for business lunch” by Crain’s Chicago Business, State and Lake Restaurant prides itself on hospitality. You’ll find a versatile bar area sharing the stage with the main dining room because we want the energy coming from our pub-style bar to mingle with the exhilarating conversation at the tables. You’ll meet people who are glad you’re here and dedicated to serving you a uniquely enjoyable dining experience.

For a fresh alternative to typical Chicago Theatre District restaurant dining, head to State and Lake at The Wit Hotel – A Doubletree By Hilton. Named for the famed Chicago intersection of State and Lake streets, State and Lake offers a chef-driven menu featuring artisanal American cuisine. Inviting and warm, with cork floors, leather walls and plush banquettes, this newly opened eatery is ideally located on the ground floor of Chicago’s newest boutique-inspired hotel. Sit back and watch the world go by as you enjoy a lunchtime escape or pre-theater bite. Sip a glass of wine, a specialty beer, or handcrafted cocktail at our intimate bar. If you’re looking for one of the best downtown Chicago restaurants, head directly to State and Lake for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
