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

Forte features a chef inspired two course dining menu with mezze-style starters and savory mains like harissa seared salmon and Moroccan tagine. Guests can expect a thoughtfully curated wine menu and bar program in a space refreshed to pair with the historic building. Conveniently and centrally located at Adams and Wabash, Forte is designed for concert goers and available to locals and visitors who aren’t attending a performance.

Reservations are available for the Dining Room two course menu. The Bar and Lounge are available for walk in guests with limited seating.
