To fit the towering heights of the peak it shares a name with, Everest placed itself on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange overlooking The Loop. Bronze sculptures decorate each table, paintings by artist Adam Siegel sit on the walls and breathtaking views rest just outside its windows. The restaurant's dedication to art is as present on its walls as it is on the plates. Esteemed Chef/proprietor J. Joho has created a menu that mixes together working class and aristocratic ingredients. Everest is also a member of Relais & Chateaux/Relais Gourmand, Les Grandes Tables du Monde, Traditions & Qualité, l'Académie Culinaire de France, and Maître-Cuisiniers de France.
