South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

Family owned and operated since 1982, Chef Luciano provides a wide assortment of food from which to choose. All of our items are made in house and made to order. Although we are a counter service restaurant, we are nothing like your typical fast food restaurant.
