Located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, John Shields & Karen Urie Shields present two distinct, exciting restaurants, Smyth and The Loyalist.
SMYTH features a joyful tasting menu journey, offering 3 distinct menus: "Classic", "Smyth" & "Omaha". The menu changes daily per The Shields' visits to The Farm. This unique collaboration is the heartbeat of Smyth, the source of the restaurant’s inspiration and its living pantry.
