Four Seasons Hotel Chicago announces Adorn Bar & Restaurant, a new concept in collaboration with James Beard award-winning chef Jonathon Sawyer.
Returning to his hometown to open his first Chicago restaurant, Adorn, chef Jonathon Sawyer will make its debut with the unveiling of the iconic Hotel’s transformative renovation on October 1, 2020. A destination where guests and locals can revel in cultural immersion with inspired food, drink, art and music, Adorn will celebrate international culinary creativity starring local ingredients and a decidedly Midwestern perspective that offers a taste of what gives Chicago its unique vibrancy. “American cuisine is incredibly diverse and my goal is to honour our cultural roots while also exploring new and innovative directions,” Chef Sawyer says. “My interpretation of New American cuisine is taking what’s classic and familiar and adorning it with unexpected ingredients and presentations that will surprise and delight diners.”
“Adorn, and our partnership with Jonathon Sawyer, will play an instrumental role as we usher in a new era and reimagine our Five-Star Hotel as a vibrant hub of culture, style and energy,” says Stephen Wancha, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Chicago. “Chef Sawyer brings personality and a worldwide perspective home to Chicago, and we are proud to collaborate with him to create memorable experiences that draw guests and locals in time and time again.”
Highlighting Sawyer’s close-to-home ingredient philosophy, the menu will offer globally-inspired cuisine rooted in the bounty of America’s Midwest. Dishes will draw on Chef Sawyer’s vast experiences, including time living in Italy and France and travelling to Japan and other culinarily-rich destinations.
