Who We Are

There’s always a seat at the table for genuine hospitality – a sense that no matter where you’re dining or drinking, you’re completely at home. That’s the driving force behind what our people do every day. Our team lives in a state of continuous growth, but we owe each step in our evolution to the unflinching hospitality that’s existed at our core since day one.

Our definition of hospitality is as eclectic as the spaces and faces that comprise our group. If you ask us, it doesn’t matter if you’re dining at a Michelin-star restaurant or seated on a patio sipping margaritas. What matters is the invaluable experience of making memories and reliving forgotten ones against the backdrop of thoughtful, sustainable food and drink.

For over 20 years, One Off Hospitality has developed and operated some of Chicago’s most beloved places to eat and drink. More importantly, we’re a group of people – chefs, hospitality veterans, managers and creators – who believe in the power of treating our guests like family and our restaurants like home.

 


What We Do

Genuine Hospitality: Whether you’re a One Off family member or a guest, it’s important that you feel completely at home in our restaurants. A true sense of belonging is contagious. 

Continuous Growth: Our goal is to look forward while still showing gratitude for our roots. Our people and our restaurants are at their strongest when they embrace change.

Authenticity: Always be kind, and always be real. Simple as that.
 

Sustainability: Making people happy is what we do, but it’s just as important that we’re kind to our land (and everything in between). We work with family farmers and purveyors from across the country who share our borderline obsession with high-quality, ethically made food and drink.

Autonomy: Our restaurants are as wide-ranging and unique as the people who keep them each running. We believe in the pursuit of independence, and we’d rather encourage individual thought than foster a group of identical thinkers.
