Located in an 1890s-era print shop, Sepia evokes the atmosphere of a bygone era.  Gary Lee Partners was the design team responsible for creating the restaurant’s inspired vintage-meets-modern décor, which combines salvaged materials and antique fixtures to create a wholly elegant space with refined and rustic appeal.  Interior details include a custom-tile, Art Nouveau floor and hand-crafted millwork that incorporates 54-inch wooden spindles salvaged from an early Chicago restaurant.  Decorative fixtures such as antique crystal chandeliers encircled with contemporary shades, 193 square feet of antique mirrored glass, and Knoll Stephens mid-century bentwood chairs reupholstered with new fabric contribute to a unique space that combines old with new.

Start the evening with hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail combined with a tour of the restaurant, led by Sepia Owner Emmanuel Nony and Donna Corbat of Gary Lee Partners, the design team who worked with Nony to create Sepia’s rustic-meets-contemporary aesthetic. An exquisitely prepared four-course wine dinner, created by Executive Chef Andrew Zimmerman and served the newly opened Private Dining by Sepia, follows a short presentation by the Sepia and Gary Lee team. Space is limited to 50 persons—advance registration is required.
