Trying to plan a special date night or special celebration? Oriole is the special place you need. The cozy 28-seat loft-like environment has both white tablecloths and visible pipes hanging from the ceiling and exposed brick walls, which altogether is a cool combination. There's no shtick at Oriole when it comes to a particular cuisine - one second you'll have some nigiri, and the next there's Alaskan king crab or thinly sliced Spanish ham in roughly fifteen course meal. The fact you don't know what's coming is a lot of fun. It'll cost you $210 (+$125 for a wine pairing) per person, but it's a key addition to Chicago's high end tasting menu repertoire and worth it for the right occasion.
