After 51 years of business, Geja’s Café  in Chicago has just unveiled it’s much-anticipated transformation. Updates include new dining chairs and silverware, and a transformed outdoor space with three fire pits.

“The Geja’s experience will now only be enhanced the moment you step onto the patio,” says Jeff Lawler, proprietor. “We feel that the addition of the outdoor patio with fire pits and garden flowers as guests enter will only add to the romance and ambiance that is Geja’s.”

With construction completed, guests will once again be able to enjoy the restaurant  that has been voted “Best Fondue Dining,” by CNN; the “Ultimate Romantic Dipping Place in North America,” by Food Network Channel; and one of “America’s 50 Most Romantic Restaurants” by Open Table.

Geja’s menu features a list of fine wines and more than 20 types of fondue entrees, including cheese and chocolate fondues. For more information, visit gejascafe.com.
