Working in the industry for so long we've developed this " emotional intelligence " about food, about what people like. And we got a pretty good idea about what Lincoln Park needs.

our story

7 Plates Cafe is a casual gourmet restaurant that combines hospitality with creative yet simple and healthy food.


The story behind the concept is the co-founders passage through 7 different countries in Europe and North America, where they worked in the hospitality industry. It all started in Romania with the family business, then it was Italy. Eager to discover and learn more they traveled to Hungary, Austria, Germany and Turkey living and working with friends that had restaurants.

In the US they joined and managed several reputable establishments.


7 Plates Cafe was born from the desire of bringing under one concept the best of what they’ve learned. A menu with European influences, real ingredients and flavor. A place that offers great service, warm ambiance and convenience. 


As much as we want to see you in our restaurant, we understand that sometimes you might be too tired or too busy. It doesn't mean you have to miss deliciousness.


We want you to enjoy a full 7 Plates experience, at home or at the office, so we offer delivery and take out services.

We also want to be part of your celebrations and important moments through our catering service.


Your turn. What would you like to eat? 


Our aim is to create food inspired by nature, by our journeys and by diversity. A blend of healthy and hearty dishes with seasonal local ingredients.

“Food is a great vehicle for sharing culture with people from different backgrounds. Food brings us together”
