Nellcôte is inspired by Villa Nellcôte, the French chateau where the Rolling Stones recorded “Exile on Main Street” in the 1970s. Over several years, between recording sessions (and bouts of debauchery), the band and their famous friends would gather over gigantic, hours-long meals prepared by a chef who sourced each day’s ingredients from the local markets.
Like its namesake chateau, Nellcôte is is both opulent and approachable, a neighborhood restaurant wrapped in high-energy elegance. It’s a place where friends convene over food and drinks prepared with fresh, seasonal, house-made ingredients — including hand-milled flour, made from Illinois Hard Winter wheat — in a setting that feels special. All accompanied by a killer background soundtrack.
