Chicago’s favorite rooftop bar, restaurant, and lounge offers you the ability to take some of the atmosphere home with you this Thanksgiving. Elevated takes on holiday classics like bourbon-glazed carrots, bacon collard greens, and cornbread stuffing share a spot alongside more unconventional sides like beets with goat cheese, but the star here is the perfectly cooked roast turkey, and the fact that they’re only charging $25 to add a wine pairing to your order. In-person dining reservations for the Thanksgiving buffet have sold out, but if you simply must take in the beautiful rooftop view while you eat, the waitlist is here.
Cost: Thanksgiving-to-go options are a la carte: turkeys are $199 and feed eight to ten, sides and wines are $25
How to order: Order your to-go feast on Tock by November 23 for pre-Thanksgiving pick-up
Christmas Eve comes early to one of Chicago’s best rooftops, courtesy of a mid-morning and afternoon brunch buffet curated by I|O Godfrey’s executive chef Alfonso Martinez. Offerings include classic brunch staples like Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Mashed Potatoes, and an Omelette station, and for folks with a heartier appetite, there are more dinner-y options on offer as well. From a full sushi bar to a carving station where you can get all the Prime Rib and jus you could ever want, your $40 will ensure you’ll be leaving full and very, very jolly.
Cost: Reservations run $39 per person
How to book: Reserve via Tock.
