Tre Dita and Bar Tre Dita are a collaboration between award-winning Chef Evan Funke (Felix, Mother Wolf, Funke) and Lettuce Entertain You. Italian for "three fingers," Tre Dita is a nod to the precise thickness of a properly cut bistecca Fiorentina, which the “cucina Toscana” serves from its open-hearth, wood-fired grill, along with handmade pastas and more. Located on the second floor of The St. Regis Chicago, designed by award-winning architect Jeanne Gang, Tre Dita offers sweeping views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River in Chicago’s Lakeshore East and is open for dinner service seven nights a week.
