In August 2014, James Beard Award-nominated Chef Paul Virant (Vie, Jar Sessions) expanded his culinary empire with Vistro, 112 S Washington St, Hinsdale.

Vistro focuses on seasonal food and drinks, staying true to Chef Virant’s philosophy of showcasing products from the Midwest.

From food enthusiasts to families on the go, Vistro’s offerings of approachable snacks and dishes will please any palate.

A wood-burning oven serves as the focal point of the dining room, a space that features a relaxed vibe designed by Chef Virant’s wife, Jennifer, and Jody Tate. Vistro boasts more than 80 seats in the dining room, with a large bar offering handcrafted mocktails and cocktails.
