The first night in Chicago for Confrad’s 2016 AGM will consist of a cocktail reception and dinner at one of Chicago’s most historically rich locations, The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. Founded by a group of prominent businessmen in the 1890’s, the Chicago Athletic Association offered membership to only the most elite Chicagoans, making the experience quite exclusive. Since then, the club has been transformed into a hotel that offers every modern convenience, while maintaining the vibe of 19th century luxury.
The reception and dinner will be held in the hotel’s rooftop restaurant & bar, Cindy’s. Often referred to as “the jewel in the crown The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel,” Cindy’s offers panoramic views of Millennium Park, the Art Institute, Lake Michigan, and more. The cuisine is headed up by executive chef Christian Ragano, who is known for his success at Tru, NoMi, and several other renown restaurants. With a menu that offers classic comfort and culinary invention, you are sure to embark on a remarkable culinary experience that will complement an extraordinary view of the city.
From Cindy’s website:
With seasonal freshness reflected in both food and drink, the rooftop dons the relaxed ambiance of a Great Lakes beach house with a view. Executive Chef Christian Ragano, creator of Glencoe’s much loved Guildhall, and former Chef de Cuisine at NoMi, joins forces with Chef de Cuisine Jeff Arasi, and renowned Spirit Guide and alumni of The Violet Hour, Nandini Khaund, to bring classic comfort and culinary invention via large format style dining over cocktails and apothecaries.
