Airport and City officials join with HMSHost for a ribbon cutting to mark the grand opening of Summer House Santa Monica at O’Hare on March 22, 2015.
Summer House Santa Monica, from the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group, is located in Terminal 2, past security, across from the Coach and MAC stores. It gives travelers a taste of the California-influenced American restaurant that embodies the personality and brand of the popular Summer House in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.
The restaurant has an open and inviting space where travelers will find a laid-back, friendly atmosphere reminiscent of a Southern California beach house. An intimate bar welcomes travelers with signature cocktails, beer, and a California-inspired wine list perfect for some relaxation before flight.
Passengers can choose from a variety of menu items through a counter service and a grab-and-go section – from salads to tacos such as the Grilled Surfer Style Baja Fish Tacos and the Grilled Ancho-Chicken Tacos. There is an array of sandwiches and burgers for travelers to choose from, house-made baked cookies and bakery items and a specially designed breakfast menu.
