Monteverde, Lonesome Rose, Esmé, and More: How to Access Chicago’s Best in Spring 2022


After another round of twists, turns, peaks, and waves, the energy of Chicago’s dining scene is once again reaching a boil — or, after this winter, at least a very welcome thaw. Tables are filling up (same goes for the waitlists) as restaurants new and old find their rhythm. To keep it brief: We’re excited.

We set our sights on the restaurants in town that will help soothe the sharpness of some of those lingering winter winds. Specifically, restaurants that are part of Global Dining Access by Resy, which provides exclusive access to American Express premium card members.

Our roster of Chicago options highlights remarkable restaurants ready and waiting to dazzle guests. You may seek the comfort of the pasta-making expertise at Monteverde or the imaginative spin on traditional American Chinese cuisine at Duck Duck Goat. Maybe it’s the luxurious art/culinary hybrid experience of a collaborative tasting menu at Bar Esmé. We’ve put together all the details you’ll need to get acquainted with the full list of our current standouts.
