Sepia is a great place for happy hour, with $10 wine flights (shocking in Chicago) and $7 bites, like this salmon. It's a steal!

Definitely one of the top ten restaurants in Chicago. Very tasty , very creative and very tasteful menue. Great and special atmosphere and a place to go to ! We also love the fact that they change the menue daily. The Sepia is outstanding.

Sepia is located west of downtown on Jefferson between Washington and Randolph. The chef is very talented and features locally-sourced ingredients.
