    I swear l love this place. They make all the drinks from scratch. Fresh ingredients from lemons, oranges; etc. You can definitely taste the difference compared to other bars Ask for Nelson bartender

    Brazilian-American, Zed451 surprised me; I enjoyed the salad bar a lot more than the meat selections (say wuuut). Also, beware of the hints of pistachio on the duck, especially if you're allergic...

    Grab a specialty cocktail (such as the tequila negroni) and a wooden bench next to the glass-encased fireplace in the lounge. Read more

    Go for brunch! A must! Maple Cajun bacon and vanilla steel cut oatmeal are game changers!!! Turkey with cranberry sauce was the best turkey I have ever had hands down.

    The buffet is delicious but save room for the meat. And ask for more of those biscuits! Once they give you the dessert plates, they remove the biscuits from the table.

    Used the upstairs room for a corporate cocktail party. Staff was awesome and the passed appetizers were really tasty. Buffalo shrimp FTW

    Blueberry Mojito is amazing. The food is phenomenal, the coriander chicken was my favorite & the "salad" bar blew my mind with the selection of completely unique side dishes. Try the chocolate chili.

    Be sure to sit at the chef's table, all the chef's are super friendly and you get first dibs as the meat comes out

    Best brunch EVER. Be hungry and ready for $3 mimosas. Keep your rocks on the table and save room for the chicken and waffles when they come around.

    Grab a drink on the rooftop and Happy Hour and enjoy the fresh air and Chi-town skyline. Mojitos and their desserts are recommended.

    This winter they have 1/2 off bottles of wine on Tuesday and live acoustic music on Wednesday. Check out their brunch on Sat. & Sun and rooftop in the summer!

    Great drinks. A bit pricey but worth it. All their martinis are great my favorites the Clemintini, Strawberry Basil, Blackberry Champagne, and Orange crush. Drink menu is seasonal.

    Don't go there and order al la carte, do The Zed Experience! And don't leave before checking out the rooftop terrace!

    A step up from fogo de chao or Texas de Brazil. Each meat has a unique sauce.

    If ZED’s rooftop lounge were yours alone, you’d be the most popular kid in town, because this space is primed for entertaining: It has an outdoor bar, rustic lounges and a sleek fireplace. Read more

    Incredible food!! Don't eat for a week before you come for dinner. The peach sangria, poached pears and 12 types of "protein" are fabulous.

    Honestly, if you're there for brunch, you must make them bring seconds of the homemade beignets. Amazing.

    Go to the rooftop of Zed 451 and ask for an original mojito. They have a fancy frufru version on the menu, but skip it and go plain, it's the best!

    Nice place for nice food. Kinda pricey though. But that's what you'd have to pay for the great environment.

    This is the best wine tasting deal in Chicago, IMHO. Ask for Chef Patrick when you book.

    Don't know what all the hubbub is about, the salad bar is sub par, the selection of meat doesn't hold a candle to Texas De Brazil, not to mention it comes out bleeding. The atmosphere was nice! 
