Dining & Refreshments

Levy Restaurants, in concert with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, is reimagining the food and beverage experience at Symphony Center. From lobby bars serving thoughtful selections to sit-down dining experiences and unforgettable private events, the two world-class institutions are now working together to deliver an elevated concert experience.

Forte at Symphony Center is Now Open!

Located at 65 E. Adams, Symphony Center’s new restaurant, Forte, offers a contemporary take on Mediterranean cuisine. With an extended closing time for postconcert dining and additional hours for select concerts, Forte is the perfect onsite spot to enjoy a pre or postconcert cocktail, meal, snack or dessert to elevate your concert experience.

Forte’s menu features fresh, lively flavors whipped into mezze-style starters, salads and focaccia. A hearth oven cooks up dishes like roasted lamb shank topped with gremolata. Forte will also offer classic cocktails, draft beer, global wines, and Metric coffee. Reservations are accepted and space is held at the bar for walk in guests.
