Dinner at Flora Fauna
As you know, one of our dopest newer clients, Flora Fauna, just opened their doors in the heart of River North. No one can get over the delicious food, unique drinks, and vibrant atmosphere this global-rustic dining experience has to offer! The duo of chef Jonathan Meyers and mixologist Liz Pearce knocked it out of the park with this worldly inspired tropical escape. As one of our personal restaurant faves, there’s always a new flavorful dish we have to try! Catch our #ChromeCrew dining in on a beautiful August afternoon, enjoying the delicious international cuisine while sippin’ on refreshing, summer cocktails. For newcomers, we’d highly recommend the incredible Seafood Daiquiri and their savory Jerk Pork Fried Rice. Do your tastebuds a favor and book your reservation with Flora Fauna this weekend. You won’t regret it!
