The Paramount Group
The Paramount Group is a hospitality group focused on creating exceptional customer experiences through food, service, and surroundings, and comprised of a collection of eight brands; Paramount Events, Eden, The Lakewood, Truffleberry Market, Lake Street Staffing, HighGround, West Lake Market and Paramount Fresh. Located in Chicago’s West Loop, The Paramount Group and its brands are owned and operated under one roof and headed up by Chicago’s very own culinary and hospitality boss lady, Jodi Fyfe. With over 25 years of experience under her belt, Jodi’s passion is bringing the highest caliber culinary experience to every client.
Launched in 2011, Paramount Events is Chicago’s go-to resource for providing unparalleled service and five-star catering to events across the city. Paramount strives to create custom and creative menus from sustainable and local products, providing every guest with impeccable service, and fostering growth in community partnerships. With three divisions – Weddings/Non-Profits, Events, and Drop Off – we bring restaurant quality dishes to every event, big or small.
Eden opened its doors in December 2016, refreshing the West Loop dining scene with a 95-seat restaurant that draws inspiration from Portugal, Spain, Greece, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco and more. Chef Devon Quinn introduces a fresh, farm-forward menu that is synonymous with clean cooking and healthy eating. A biologist by nature with a proclivity for hyper-local ingredients, Chef Quinn applies the bounty of his onsite 500-square foot greenhouse throughout the menu, treating guests to fresh flavors year-round, and executing cuisine laden with technical quality and distinction. Completing Eden’s team are Pastry Chef Stefano Tulipano and Mixologist Alex Rydzewski, who procure desserts and cocktails symbiotic with Eden’s menu.
Mirroring the food and beverage programs, Eden’s design embraces craftsmanship and local resources to brim with rustic touches and authentic finishes. Original exposed brick speaks to the neighborhood’s industrial history, while graphic black and white tile enhance the exclusive Chef’s Counter and expansive bar. Offering two private dining rooms, Sage and Celadon, Eden emulates an ideal setting for any large party.
Eden is located at 1748 W. Lake St. and is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 5 pm to 10 pm, with the bar open until 11 pm. Brunch is offered from 10 am to 2 pm on Sunday.
