Gemini Chicago
Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, Gemini has become everyone’s neighborhood restaurant even if they don’t live around the corner. A made-from-scratch mentality can be found throughout the dinner and brunch menus with dishes that have roots in classic American cuisine but with Midwest seasonality and sensibility. The expansive u-shaped bar serves as a focal point in the 92-seat space designed by 555 International both physically and spiritually, providing a welcoming gathering spot for its many regulars. In warmer months, the pergola-topped sidewalk patio provides a perfect escape for diners as well as their furry four-legged friends. Gemini is from partner Pauly Graves and Ballyhoo Hospitality, the Chicago restaurant group also behind Lakeview’s Coda di Volpe and the Gold Coast's Walton Street Kitchen + Bar.

Founded in 2018 after a combined 35 years in the business by husband-and-wife partners Ryan and Anna O’Donnell, Ballyhoo Hospitality champions the qualities that make a neighborhood restaurant great. The heart-felt greeting when you walk in the door, service that makes you feel cared for and a warm ambiance that encourages you to relax. Whether it’s the American-inspired cuisine at Gemini, the southern Italian favorites at Coda di Volpe or the refined nostalgic American at soon-to-open Walton Street, Ballyhoo restaurants offer thoughtful, inspired food and drinks that satisfy in memorable ways again and again. We don’t have customers at Ballyhoo Hospitality restaurants, we have guests.
