welcome to bad hunter


We are a veg-forward restaurant and bar in the West Loop. Our goal is simple: to create a joyful experience by presenting the highest quality food and drink in a comfortable, convivial setting. By taking a more ‘sessionable' approach to both the food and drink, this is a place to have lunch, linger over an afternoon glass of wine, enjoy dinner and stay for a cocktail.




If there’s a better name for a veggie-focused restaurant, I haven’t heard it.

With its seductively comfortable dining room and low-octane wines and cocktails, Bad Hunter wants you to nosh, sip, and stick around.

Designed to conjure images of a lush English garden, the relaxed, sunny space is a refreshing change of pace for Restaurant Row. Dan Snowden serves as chef, maximizing a wood grill to punch up flavors on his veg-driven plates.
