The hotel Acadia is located in Chicago (1639 S Wabash Ave, IL 60616). It was an airy, high-end, seasonal new American dining with great services.
About the name, the word Acadia originally came from ‘Arcadia’ the name of a district in Greece. During the French colonial empire, the name was given. And it has an extended meaning which is ‘idyllic place.’
The restaurant was inspired by coastal marines. Services come great with great foods to serve!
Their unique approach to dishes and quality ingredients made them quite popular among people. Food decoration is particularly amazing! If you talk about service, food quality, and environment, in a word, it's EXCELLENT!
Better still, they served a wide range of foods meeting the demand of people from various cultures and identities. And for the most part, the kitchen is so beautiful that smells so healthy. It’s open and dedicated to serving quality foods with attention to customers' concerns.
Chef Ryan McCaskey and his team made it a perfect place with classic American cuisine.
From delicious desserts to seafood, it’s always perfect! Flavors are very subtle so it’s delightful if you like nuanced tastes. With amazing cutlery and dishes, bet you’ve never seen such amazing decorations.
The knives are quite functional and comfortable in dining. Consequently, the sophisticated interior of the hotel will grab your eyes. It's casual yet beautiful and has totally a family vibe inside!
Natural elements make it so inviting, memorable, and comfortable. There were separate private dining, lounge space, and dining room.
Does acadia provide staycation service? The answer is BIG no. We just provide dinging and takeaway service only.
But unfortunately, for some reason, the hotel is permanently closed now!
However, this highly popular website is still live as you're here now and it's conquered by a new owner. He's now focusing on food and kitchen blogging to help people find great information on this niche.
