Magnolia Café is located north
of downtown Chicago in the newly revitalized neighborhood of
Uptown. Beautiful pictures of Magnolia flowers line the walls of
this intimate American Bistro. The atmosphere is cozy and
conversation friendly with lively jazz music playing softly in
the background. One can enjoy many of the unique cocktails
served at Magnolia’s bar or indulge in any of their small
production, boutique bottles of wine. Steak and fish dishes are
prepared with a stylish twist and choosing one dish from another
is quite the challenge.
The restaurant welcomes all size
Magnolia often hosts wine dinners where Chef Kasra
Medhat prepares a unique menu to be paired with numerous wines.
Private parties are available by reservation and offsite

has been with Magnolia since its opening nine years ago.
