Forte is a Mediterranean restaurant taking up residence in Symphony Center, home to the acclaimed Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Fresh, lively flavors are whipped into mezze-style starters and pastas, while a hearth oven cooks up dishes like focaccia with roasted fig and braised lamb shank topped with gremolata.

Guests can also expect a thoughtfully curated global wine menu and bar program, locally roasted Metric Coffee, and locally made Paulo Gelato in a space that’s recently refreshed to pair with the historic building.

Conveniently and centrally located at Adams and Wabash, Forte is created for audience members but also locals and visitors who aren’t attending a performance.
