We may have a certain affection for the magnificent city of Chicago–our home offices are there–and now there’s reason for a greater endearment, the ultra-luxurious Deer Path Inn reopened its doors in North Shore. A year-long renovation took place to unveil revamped interiors and an upgrade to their amenities while retaining its Tudor-style architecture.
With just 57 rooms, you’re certain to experience individual hospitality and attention. Keeping its 1920s charm, yet staying relevant, the Inn upgraded the rooms to include modern-day technology (wi-fi, flat screen TVs, individual thermostats, etc.) and added the extra touch of luxury that makes our toes tingle–Frette linens, marble bathrooms, and a beverage cart!
Since 1929, the Inn has played host for guests to celebrate special occasions, a place for the jet set to visit, and a reprieve for the well-heeled locals in-the-know and it continues to uphold this prestige.
Dining at the Inn is none other than exquisite and there is a venue that suits any mood you wish. The White Hare Pub offers a casual setting with traditional English pub fare including Bangers & Mash, Shepard’s Pie, and Scottish eggs. The Bar offers an upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere with an extensive wine and cocktail list along with salads, carpaccio, sushi, and the like. As refined as the Inn is, they have a sense of humor and unpretentiousness – notice the Big-Ass Steak Sandwich and smaller versioned, Half-Ass on the menu.
The English Room’s menu is a celebration to the taste buds in an atmosphere worthy of any special occasion. They had me at first course–langoustine with celery fennel remoulade, caviar lemon; quail egg with white truffle, black mission fig jus; rabbit with gnocchi, dry ricotta, mushroom rabbit ragu …
The special touches, the divine sense of place, the dining, it’ s no wonder this Inn has been a North Shore staple, and a special one at that, for decades and for decades more to come.
