Summary: Seasonal American cuisine in vintage ambiance.

Nestled in a former 1890 print shop, Sepia exudes a charm that's both old-world and contemporary. This Chicago gem offers a seasonal menu highlighting organic and sustainable fare, with an emphasis on fish and seafood. The ambiance is a fusion of the building's original architectural beauty with modern touches like custom millwork and dramatic chandeliers. It's an atmosphere free of pretension, inviting diners to savor each bite, from the house-made charcuterie to the warm pumpkin cake with sage ice cream. A curated wine list of artisanal producers complements the dining experience, while the service shines with polish and knowledge. Sepia is a testament to the power of first impressions and the lasting impact of a meal that marries rustic charm with refined flavors.
