Hyatt Place Chicago/River North is proud to offer a new restaurant option to our guests. Ema, located just off our lobby, is a Mediterranean restaurant showcasing celebrity chef CJ Jacobson’s lighter style of cooking. Rated by Zagat as the fourth-most anticipated restaurant opening of the summer in the country, Ema welcomes guests for lunch and dinner. As one of the best River North restaurants, signature dishes include spicy hummus, house-made stracciatella with vine-ripened tomatoes and lamb kefta kebabs.

Orange County-born, Chef C.J. Jacobson is best known for his ‘rustic-refined’ way of cooking. His craft revolves around hyper-seasonal, local California ingredients, where foraging plays a main part in the flavor profiles that he creates in his kitchen.
After his first appearance on Top Chef in 2007, he participated in the James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour. 7 years later, he returned to Top Chef winning Top Chef Duels in 2014.
