Rooftop season is undoubtedly among us and it is undoubtedly in full swing. Sitting right off the Mag Mile lies the Conrad Chicago – I have been a huge fan of the Conrad ever since I visited their NYC location, so when Noyane opened on the rooftop here I knew it was going to be above and beyond (literally).
Noyane is a Japanese word that translates to ‘hidden roof’, but it is by no means a secret. While you enjoy some rosé, a Lychee Martini or some contemporary Japanese cuisine, you’re surrounded by a beautiful atmosphere in addition to Chicago’s finest high- rises and views.
We came with an appetite and dove right into a bottle of rosé and some courses. We started the meal off with a King Crab Maki Roll and some Hamachi + Tuna Tartare. Both were so divine and were so rich in flavor, I have never had such a yummy Maki roll. We quickly followed our first course with Pork Belly Steamed Buns and Tempura Rock Shrimp; To say that we were deeply satisfied would be an understatement.
After our courses, we got to meet and talk to the Executive Sushi Chef, Jordan Dominguez as he spoiled us with some of his exclusive speciality dishes.
As someone who seeks and values the fine dining experience as much as myself, Noyane checked everything off my list. Whether it’s for a date, dinner or happy hour, it would be an absolute shame to not experience Noyane at the Conrad this summer.
