This summer, the Chicago riverfront welcomed its newest restaurant: Pizzeria Portofino

The sun-drenched casual restaurant is filled with breezy decor that will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera. Inside, guests dine amidst white-washed wood, colorful shutters, and playful striped booths as they look out onto the beautiful water and Chicago’s historic architecture outside.  

Pizzeria Portofino's coastal Italian cuisine is present throughout every inch of the restaurant. Guests can feast in the 2,000-square-foot, 108-person dining room or the expansive 1,600-square-foot outdoor patio that hosts an additional 80 people.  

Smaller events are scattered throughout the main dining room and patio, allowing for guests of smaller events to enjoy the energy and atmosphere of the restaurant. While there are not separate private event spaces or rooms at Pizzeria Portofino, large groups can buy out the entire space.  

Pizzeria Portofino has opened in a location that is central to several of Chicago’s greatest neighborhoods including the Loop and River North, and with everything it has to offer, the restaurant is sure to make a name for itself amid the culture, history and water.  

In celebration of the opening of the Art Institute of Chicago’s “Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again” exhibit on Oct. 20, The Albert restaurant will offer a special “POPart” inspired cocktail. Priced at 14$, the unique combination of pink and purple hues made with vodka, rose, tea and wild raspberry will surely spark the perfect photo-op.

 

Hotel EMC2 is celebrating National Art Day (Oct. 25) with paint-by-numbers amenities, which will be delivered to all guest rooms throughout the day. The property's artistic influence has led to similar art and science activations in the past, including celebrations of Albert Einstein's birthday, Pi Day, the 500th Anniversary of Da Vinci's death and more.

 

Replay Lincoln Park is celebrating Halloween all month with an "It" themed pop-up now through Oct. 31. Featuring custom artwork and photo oppportunities designed by local artists, the "It" pop-up will transport guests to Derry, Maine where the scares of Stephen King's popular novel and movies will come to life.
