Located in Lincoln Park, (1633 n. Halsted) across from The Steppenwolf Theatre, premier restaurant groups Boka and Bristol collaborated with Chef Chris Pandel to provide authentic seasonal Italian food that continues to amaze patrons on a daily basis. An amazing decorum provides the perfect setting for large gatherings or an intimate dinner with your significant other. They are now offering food and drink specials Monday through Thursday starting at 5:00 pm until 6:30 pm where you will be able to get some of our favorite dishes like the Burrata Di Panna and Octopus (pictured below) for half price. With its knowledgeable staff, extensive wine list and incredible menu, Balena is the ideal backdrop for enjoying a wonderful culinary experience.
