THE ORIGINS

Inspired by over a decade of extensive travel throughout the islands of Greece, DineAmic Hospitality partners, David Rekhson and Lucas Stoioff, acquired a profound appreciation for the natural Greek lifestyle. Rooted in the Greek ethos of wellness, LÝRA brings fresh, holistic fare to Chicago diners in an earth-toned, indoor-meets-outdoor space. LÝRA's design utilizes rustic elements of rural Greek landscapes and integrates them into Fulton Market’s contemporary setting.

THE CHEF

In order to fully execute the vision, LÝRA has partnered with the Greek culinary superstar, Athinagoras Kostakos. The award-winning, internationally-acclaimed Chef takes full advantage of LÝRA's custom wood and charcoal burning hearth, by applying island cooking techniques. Expect simple dishes with bold flavors that rely on the quality of their ingredients rather than overly complicated sauces.

THE MENU

The menu incorporates renditions of authentic Greek favorites with locally sourced ingredients. The charcoal and wood-burning grills impart complex and smoky flavors, while the open flames deliver visual value. Dishes range from comforting and traditional to lighter Mediterranean fare, all of which are designed for guests to share. In true Greek fashion, the menu also includes plenty of vegetarian options.

THE SPACE

The focal point of our 8,000-square-foot space is the large open-kitchen with a wood and coal burning hearth, perched above the dining room. The elevated cooking stage is the heart of the restaurant, allowing our culinary team to showcase the cuisine. In addition, a wraparound patio, equipped with operable floor-to-ceiling windows,  seamlessly integrates the indoor and outdoor spaces. Sand-colored tones complement the interior while unique lighting elements transport guests to the Mediterranean. The restaurant boasts two private dining rooms, which may either be sectioned off or integrated into the main dining room. Each space has numerous event capabilities and allows for up to a 60-person seated occasion.
