Enjoy the best rooftop dining Chicago has to offer.
The jewel in the crown of The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, Cindy's is our rooftop restaurant and open-air terrace with panoramic views of Millennium Park, the Art Institute, Lake Michigan, and beyond.
Created out of thin air, the aery atmosphere gives contrast to the Association’s history as a men’s club, yet carries an unmistakable look of having always been here. With seasonal freshness reflected in both food and drink, this Chicago restaurant truly offers some of the best cuisine while donning the relaxed ambience of a Great Lakes beach house with a view. Executive Chef Christian Ragano brings family style classic comfort food, bio-dynamic wines and award-winning cocktails with large format apothecaries.

Doors Open Dishes is committed to keeping the doors open to the group homes and workshops of individuals with special needs. To make up for the budget crisis in Illinois which has led to severe cuts in services for these individuals, the Chicago organization is partnering with chefs across the city to create dishes inspired by an individual at one of these programs. This September 2018, Cindy's rooftop restaurant perched atop the Chicago Athletic Association hotel welcomes guests during lunch to taste the dish that Executive Chef Christian Ragano created inspired by Daniel.
