Chicago’s historic landmark – the Bedford Restaurant and Bar was on my “To Do” list —
The developers salvaged and incorporated countless elements of the original building, creating a striking decor:
- black marble from the teller counters
- the bank’s vault
- banking tables
- nickel-plated safe deposit boxes
- copper-faced boxes inside the vault
- glorious crown moldings
- and more!
I tried the “Dark and Stormier” cocktail, although I was tempted by the “Cucumber Cooler”. We noshed on mussels and oysters – yum! Then, instead of choosing one of the entrees, we instead chose to linger over the charcuterie and cheese trays.
It was a wonderful night in a charming historic venue. I definitely recommend you give it a whirl!
