The Erie Café’s classic club-like atmosphere blends a cedar ceiling and exposed brick walls with new wood paneling, which is accented by original impressionist oil paintings.  Featuring large picture windows simply draped in floral chintz, The Erie Café is the perfect setting for casually elegant dining, and seats 380 guests. Situated in the historic River North area, this architecturally significant building features arched stoned windows overlooking Chicago’s Loop.  It was carefully rehabbed to become The Erie Café, a steakhouse that opened its doors in September 1994.
