Smyth dining room Chicago Restaurant - Smyth + The Loyalist, Chicago IL

SMYTH - Chicago, IL

When it comes to Smyth, expect surprises.

It is a confluence of warmth, vitality and artistry.

The name "Smyth" is an homage to the depth and richness of our five wonderful years in the farmlands of Smyth County, Virginia, where we expanded our knowledge and vision. We now bring this sensibility back to our Chicago culinary roots to create thoughtful dishes from pristine products - dishes that are imaginative, yet humble and grounded.

Our informal atmosphere features an open kitchen surrounded by intimate tables and a cozy living room-style lounge. From the warm greeting you receive upon entering until your final goodbye, we invite you to feel at home.

Smyth offers 3 different experiences for guests to enjoy:

A tasting vignette created by chefs John Shields and Karen Urie Shields. Please allow 1.5 hours for the experience.

A narrative of John and Karen's journey through Smyth County, Virginia. This 2 hour experience has balance and warmth, and is a special treat for the senses.

A tasting voyage reflecting John and Karen's passage through Smyth County, VA and embarking upon their vision of the present. This experience is luxurious yet comforting with a natural ebb and flow. Please allow 2.5 hours for this experience.
