Located in Chicago’s River North area, American Junkie is over 12,000 square feet of excitement sprawling over two levels. The 320-seat restaurant pays tribute to the epitome of the ‘American experience’ by combining rugged details with classic moments.
As an infill project, bringing natural light into the main spaces was our biggest challenge. This was accomplished through the use of overhead doors off the main dining space.
American Junkie’s seating layout is a combination of banquets along the perimeter and open dining that can shift to cater to the masses. Multiple full service bars define the layout; on the first floor, it is used to spatially break up the dining layout of the restaurant.
