Taking Stock
A New Date Spot in the Financial District

There’s nothing like getting in on the ground floor.

So consider this the best tip you’ll hear all day: there’s a new place for post-work canoodling in the Financial District.

Introducing IPO, a sparkling new ground-floor restaurant in the W Chicago City Center, now serving cocktails, small plates, breakfast dishes for dinner and—as is sometimes necessary after a night of tense merger negotiations—dinner dishes for breakfast.

You’ll remember this space as Ristorante We, or maybe you won’t. Doesn’t matter. The point is, you enter the same way—go through revolving doors, past the bar on your left (don’t worry; there’s another one where you’re going), and hang a right at the lobby.

Now, if you turn right again, you’ll find a room in the front, outfitted in mauves and iridescent fabrics—ideal for making a lunch deal over an open-face crab cake sandwich or a juicy burger topped with tomato jam—overlooking the bustling Adams Street sidewalk.

But for those more delicate dinner deals, hang left. Grab a seat in the snug, darkly lit bar. The menu’s designed for sharing, so you can start grazing on a few scallops dusted with chorizo powder, a grilled beef tenderloin or some beef short ribs topped with two eggs, sunny-side up. Actually, a version of that dish also appears on the breakfast menu...

So let’s hope it’s a long night.
