Lincoln Park's dining scene is about to get a new addition with the opening of Americano, nestled at 1816 N. Clark Street in the Hotel Lincoln. Scheduled to open its doors on June 17, 2024, the eatery aims to bring an eclectic menu inspired by international cuisines while honoring American classics. Patrons can expect dinner and weekend brunch service, with lunch offerings to follow, Americanino Lincoln Park reported.

Restaurateur Adolfo Garcia is the brain behind Americano, giving food enthusiasts a trip around the world with dishes such as Caviar Deviled Eggs and Chard Chicken, complete with pineapple kabobs and saffron jasmine rice. Additionally, the establishment boasts a Happy Hour from Monday to Friday, including $2 oysters and discounted libations. A spokesperson for Americano mentioned that families are also catered for, with a kid-friendly menu and amenities, ensuring a pleasant dining experience for all ages, according to the restaurant's website.

The beverage program at Americano is curated by JP Hernandez, known for his work at Koval Distillery. Hernandez brings his passion for clarified cocktails to the table, offering guests an opportunity to taste unique spins on traditional drinks. The cocktail list promises a seasonal rotation, ensuring fresh experiences for returning visitors. On the weekends, brunch-goers can delight in a $30 Bottomless Brunch with options such as mimosas and clarified mojitos, each offered for a period of 90 minutes.

The space itself reflects a traveler's journey, with design elements that pair lush, trailing ivy and vibrant greenery against a background of velvet green wallpaper and brass Chicago Cubs bears. Visitors can bask in the unique ambiance, furthered by live music during weekends and an open-air feel when the weather permits. Americano’s design also extends to accommodate furry friends, with a dedicated "Griff & Bones" corner for pet dogs to enjoy their owner's dining experience alongside them, as detailed on Americano's website.

For those looking to host private gatherings, Americano offers a tailored package for exclusive events. Meanwhile, the restaurant hires highly motivated professionals, emphasizing a safe, inclusive environment for both staff and guests.
