Our company rented out the private dining area for 20 of us. The staff was wonderful and so accommodating throughout the chaos that we bring everywhere. We changed seats like 5 times and the staff didn't even skip a beat. The food was incredible and definitely the best I had during our entire trip. The chef was even nice enough to come in and introduce himself and the dishes for the evening. I will definitely be back next time I am in Chicago for vacation. Highly recommend!

Stopped by mid-afternoon for a late lunch/bite and was pleasantly surprised by the extensive wine flights and great food. Will definitely return again!

I flew into Chicago for the weekend and due to heavy traffic, we only got away from the hotel just before 10 to eat. Bin 62 was recommended and fortunately the closest restaurant. They kindly served us just before the kitchen closed. The food was delicious and the wine was sublime, all served by a friendly waiter. Due to my limited stay, we asked the waiter for some recommendations for tourists for the next day. He went above and beyond, writing some details down. When he discovered my husband was South African, he called over the owner. Enoch was delightful and plied us with some 2015 Groot Constantia over great conversation.
It made us linger on our 'flying visit' to theh restaurant and will be recommending Bin 62 to all our friends! Thanks, guys.

We immediately hopped on a wine flight (all under $20!)They are pared by clever profiles like "Sexy Reds" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me" Whites. The waited informed us that the plates are tapas style, so we opted to share four dished between the two of us: roasted carrots and hummus, shaved cauliflower salad, roasted butternut squash over lentils, and seared salmon. Each was the perfect size for 2 to share. This restaurant is a must try. It truly was the best meal we had during our weeklong visit to Chicago! Great ambiance and service as well. Highly recommend!

My wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel and they recommended Bin 36. "Lots of our guests go there and say it’s pretty good."

So we decided to try out Bin 36. It was late (after 10 pm) and we thought the kitchen might be closed, but it was still open, for a short while. With some help from our friendly waiter, we quickly placed our order.

I ordered a Flat Iron steak and my wife had their Bin burger. Both were great and the Californian house red complemented our meal wonderfully. After our meal we enjoyed a South African Pinotage with the owner / manager Enoch, that really made our meal.

I will definitely be going back if I am anywhere near Chicago!
