Our Story

151 Kitchen | Bar is a locally owned restaurant located in the heart of charming, downtown Elmhurst across from York Theater.  Our executive chef and his culinary team bring the Chicago dining experience to the western suburbs with a focus on honoring midwestern dishes and locally sourced ingredients; while taking a unique approach to classic American cuisine.  The menu is anchored by seasonality and complemented by an extensive beverage program that works in tandem with the food menu. Seasonally inspired cocktails, local craft beers, and thoughtfully curated wine selections are central to our beverage program.  The versatility of 151’s menu is reflected in the dining experience it offers to its guests who can choose to order an entree at the bar, a small plate al fresco, or multiple plates to share among friends in the dining area.

151 Kitchen | Bar provides a unique décor that reflects the rustic tone of the midwestern menu with invitingly comfortable furnishings.  We hope that you will find our food to nourish, our service to recharge, and our space to be convivial and comfortable. We believe that family + friends connecting and sharing over a meal is always cause for a celebration!

151 Kitchen | Bar is the perfect venue for your special occasion or corporate function. Whether a small, intimate gathering or a large social event, our different dining rooms and bar area can be uniquely configured to accommodate 6 to 150 guests.
