Refined, casual, contemporary and classic all at the same time, The Blanchard's heart is an open kitchen fronted by a chef's counter. Our team of chefs execute classic French technique mixed with modern creativity. Executive Chef Ryan Burns and his team use creative ingredients and bring new ideas to the tableau that is classic French cuisine. Enjoy wine, cocktails, and anything on our menu in the lounge, or dinner in the subtly elegant dining room. The Blanchard is a respite in the bustling Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago.
