Located in Chicago's West Loop, the Proxi is a stunning restaurant space that finds its home in a former printing house. Designed by New York-based studio Meyer Davis, the gorgeous restaurant a mid-century aesthetic with iconic lamps, burnt orange leather booths, refreshed white tiles, white-washed oak paneling and much more. The expansive 5,900-square-foot restaurant is divided into distinct areas with each area decorated differently with custom-made and contemporary furniture and lighting.
The eclectic design of the Proxi took some inspiration from the restaurant's menu, which chef Andrew Zimmerman designed around global street food. Items like tempura elotes, grilled sweet potato salad, raw tuna and shaved zucchini feature modern takes on classic dishes and showcase amazing flavors and textures. The drinks menu features an extensive list of cocktails, wine, beer and non-alcoholic options, but also features a unique Spanish Style Gin & Tonics section which feature interesting riffs on the classic mix.
