Executive Chef Brian Jupiter creates mouthwatering dishes celebrating American contemporary cuisine, blending game and other seasonal ingredients into approachable, updated classics. Frontier’s interior draws inspiration from the American pioneers with a rustic aesthetic featuring reclaimed wood floors, natural timber details and exposed red brick. For those who want to enjoy a modern day culinary adventure, Frontier’s signature whole animal service will be a memorable dining experience that will be talked of for years. Take a gander at a whole pig, wild boar, goat, lamb and even alligator cooked for hours in the on-site smoker and served with four perfectly-paired side dishes. There is simply no better way to enjoy a meal with a large group of friends, family or work colleagues in Chicago. Host your party in one of three different event spaces at Frontier, or reserve the entire venue for a 300+ guest full buy-out. A cozy Chef’s table provides an up-close and lively experience for up to 10 guests in the open-air kitchen. Groups as small as 8 to 100+ people may celebrate in the all-weather Beer Garden patio featuring a transparent, retractable roof that provides year-round, casual “outdoor” dining with a dedicated bar. For a more intimate occasion, the charming 2nd floor Elixir lounge with working stone fireplace, DJ booth, AV capabilities, private full-service bar and restrooms is perfect for rehearsal dinners, corporate meetings or even a late night dance party. Seasonality and sustainability are the driving forces behind Frontier’s dinner menu which includes small plates, vegetables, sandwiches and creative entrees designed to share. Frontier’s menu also features 8-10 varieties of oysters to order a la carte with dinner, or to enjoy with a bottle of beer at the bar. Over the weekend, patrons may indulge in brunch offerings including a wide selection of Frontier signature dishes alongside traditional breakfast items. Complimenting Frontier's savory menu items are unique wines by the glass & bottle, specialty craft cocktails including inventive punches and frozen cocktails along with 16 seasonal and traditional beers on tap featuring American-craft microbrews. The bar is one of the few in Chicago to employ almost all state-of-the-art ice taps that keep beer colder and fresher while providing a cleaner pour.
