WoodWind brings Matt O’Neill’s elegant yet simple dishes — made with honest excellence, playful creativity, and spirited hospitality — to a beautiful, casual, and comfortable setting.

Come On Up!

Offering sophisticated dining, cocktails & views 18 floors above Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood, WoodWind celebrates the integrity of ingredients at their peak, presented with creativity & refined techniques. Its contemporary American menu brims with playfulness through dishes designed by Chef Matt O’Neill & Executive Chef Alex Cabrera, all sensibly paired with imaginative seasonal cocktails from Mixologist Carolina Gonzalez. Boldly off the beaten path, on the 18th floor of the Lavin Family Pavilion in the Northwestern Medicine Campus, the restaurant offers guests a gourmet getaway, a spacious outdoor patio, and an expansive events space, just blocks from the Magnificent Mile in a comfortable & decidedly classic Chicagoan setting.
