Tis the Season


Mercat a la Planxa, Chicago, IL

Tis the season for winter in the Windy City!

With so many exciting things to do in the city, it’s easy to forget that it’s -4 degrees outside. Well, not really, but it is easy to distract yourself from it.

Mercat a la Planxa is steps from some of the greatest sites in Chicago that offer some fun activities. You can take your family right cross the street after feasting on a hearty brunch with us & head to Grant Park for sledding down the hill. Just a few blocks North on Michigan Avenue you will find beautiful Millennium Park where you can skate whimsically on Park Grill’s gorgeous ice rink under Cloud Gate, also known as “The Bean”. After imbibing in some scrumptious spiked hot chocolate in our Lounge, you can head East to Northerly Island where you can rent snow shoes for merely $5 & explore almost 2 acres of our stunning lakefront. If the outdoors aren’t your thing in the winter time, maybe you would enjoy taking in a show. With three theaters within 5 blocks you can’t go wrong by starting with Mercat’s pre-theater Chef’s tasting menus before heading over to take in the incredible local talent. Whatever it is you enjoy, you’ll find it here in Chicago. We’re lucky at Mercat to be right in the center of all the action & we would love you to add us to your winter plans! It will be cold, but it will be worth it, we promise!
