OK, it's been around for a long long time, but it was one reason to stay at the Drake. We miss it, but will have to eat elsewhere. (They non longer serve whitefish at the Coq d'Or either)

Some restaurants survive for only a few years. They simply can't keep up with the competition, especially in Chicago. But when an iconic restaurant like the Cape Cod Room in Chicago's iconic Drake Hotel closes after 83 years...well, that's a very emotional experience. My wife...More

Nothing better than to tuck into the Cape Cod Room in the Drake on a cold December evening for dinner. Try the lobster thermador; it was wonderful and reminded us of our early dating years in the 1970s. The service is excellent and most of...More

a longtime chicago institution is closing later this week, While many have fond memories of eating here, the current offerings do not measure up. Nice atmosphere, just ok food.

The oysters rockerfeller were luke warm and my scallps were average. Maybe because they are closing their doors soon they really don't care anymore. Hope they put something exciting and delicious in it's place.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

The Cape Cod, a much honored seafood restaurant, boasts of fresh seafood from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, from the lakes and freshwater streams. It has been consistently named as one of America's finest dining spots since opening in 1933. Zagat's consumer survey also picked the Cape Cod as a top hotel restaurant. It was recently inducted by Nation's Restaurant News into the Fine Dining Hall of Fame. Located on the arcade level, the cozy restaurant, established in 1933 is decked with nautical paraphernalia. Nautical themed, wooden beams, hanging copper pots and stuffed sailfish adorn the room, walls and ceiling of this immensely popular restaurant. Reservations are very strongly recommended.
