Alain2Bienvenue !

Le Petit Paris offers you a truly unique dining experience.

Locals and visitors alike are drawn to the ambiance and relaxed atmosphere of our classic French bistro. Chef/Owner Alain Sutbon lights up the evening and provides a warm setting for lively conversation over a glass of red wine and fabulous French cuisine.

Centrally located on Chestnut Street in the heart of Downtown Chicago, our French bistro is just one block from Lake Michigan.  We are at the heart of Chicago's world class shopping near the Water Tower Place and Michigan Avenue. Come relax at Le Petit Paris after a long day of shopping!

Along with our fine selections of French wines, our signature dishes include duck with grand marnier sauce, oven roasted rack of lamb, and fish.  Daily trips to the market are used to give you the freshest ingredients!  To complete the evening, try our house-made desserts with a glass of port.  Check often for monthly specials!

"I invite you to dine with us for a romantic dinner or a night out with friends or family.  Bon Appetite!"
