Hotel Monaco, Chicago
South Water Kitchen


South Water Kitchen Chef


Chicago loves American food. No question. Which is why locals flock to our South Water Kitchen. It's right next to the hotel, and Chef Roger Waysok serves taste-tempting American comfort food. Nine-to-fivers in the Loop flock here during lunch time for daily specials like brick oven mussels and pulled pork sandwiches. Then they come back after work to unwind with dinner or specialty cocktails. As a Monaco guest, you'll enjoy mixing, mingling and chowing down on our inventive version of comfort food.

A Casual, Family-Friendly Atmosphere. The restaurant's inviting décor complement's the elegant playfulness of the Hotel Monaco Chicago's interiors. Design elements include rich colors, strong columns and intimate lighting throughout. Our casual Chicago American restaurant is the perfect haven from the hustle and bustle of busy downtown Chicago. And kids fit right in.
