Gemini Chicago
Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, Gemini has become everyone’s neighborhood restaurant even if they don’t live around the corner. A made-from-scratch mentality can be found throughout the dinner and brunch menus with dishes that have roots in classic American cuisine but with Midwest seasonality and sensibility. The expansive u-shaped bar serves as a focal point in the 92-seat space designed by 555 International both physically and spiritually, providing a welcoming gathering spot for its many regulars. In warmer months, the pergola-topped sidewalk patio provides a perfect escape for diners as well as their furry four-legged friends. Gemini is from partner Pauly Graves and Ballyhoo Hospitality, the Chicago restaurant group also behind Lakeview’s Coda di Volpe and the Gold Coast's Walton Street Kitchen + Bar.

Founded in 2018 after a combined 35 years in the business by husband-and-wife partners Ryan and Anna O’Donnell, Ballyhoo Hospitality champions the qualities that make a neighborhood restaurant great. The heart-felt greeting when you walk in the door, service that makes you feel cared for and a warm ambiance that encourages you to relax. Whether it’s the American-inspired cuisine at Gemini, the southern Italian favorites at Coda di Volpe or the refined nostalgic American at Walton Street, Ballyhoo restaurants offer thoughtful, inspired food and drinks that satisfy in memorable ways again and again. We don’t have customers at Ballyhoo Hospitality restaurants, we have guests.
