Traditional Heart with a Modern Hand
Located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, Monteverde is an Italian restaurant that blends the traditions of Italian culture and cooking with influences from Chef Sarah Grueneberg’s trips around the world, as well as her family heritage.
Monteverde offers a new way to experience Italian food, highlighting some dishes that are deeply rooted in tradition while others have adventurous new flavors, through the use of global ingredients and cooking methods not usually seen in the Italian kitchen.
Using the best of the Midwest as well as from Italy, all of our ingredients follow Grueneberg’s passion for “following the food,” or ensuring that each ingredient is being raised with the highest standards.
At the heart of the restaurant is the Pastificio where our team creates fresh, hand-made pastas throughout the day, offering a variety of shapes, sizes and textures. Flour is power at Monteverde.
Congratulations Chef Sarah!
Monteverde is proud to announce Chef Sarah Grueneberg is the 2017 recipient of the James Beard Foundation Award "Best Chef: Great Lakes".
