Bellemore Restaurant Brings Breezy Elegance to Chicago

Chef Jimmy Papadopoulos’s luxurious new 6,000-square-foot West Loop eatery isn’t afraid of a little whimsy

A new breezy elegance has come to Chicago’s West Loop, where chef Jimmy Papadopoulos’s lightheartedness infuses every element of his latest restaurant, Bellemore. Conceived with local design firm Studio K to evoke an old manor done up for a younger generation, the room is all whites and light-stained oak, with Kelly Wearstler green-and-white chevron tiles by Ann Sacks and pink velvet stools. The dishes Papadopoulos creates are just as bright, bold, and delightful. From a standout oyster pie topped with osetra caviar and purple nasturtium to a 21-day aged duck glazed with burnt honey, this is self-assured haute cuisine that isn’t afraid of a little whimsy. bellemorechicago.com
