The Freehling Room
Critically acclaimed restaurateur Carlos Nieto and his wife Debbie have been serving fine cuisine at Ravinia’s donor dining club, the Freehling Room, for 15 years. While the menu on classical performance evenings will still offer such delicacies as miso-marinated Alaskan halibut and petite filet served with purple potato rosettes in a red-wine reduction, the Freehling Room this summer will also offer more casual fare on the nights of Ravinia’s biggest pop/rock concerts. On those nights, reservations will be available to donors at the Opus level or higher, whereas reservations on classical performance evenings will be available to those at the Guarantor level or higher.
Offers delicious fresh choices, fast! Take away hot pressed tortas, signature brick oven pizzas or grilled burgers, daily specials, salads, dips and spreads as well as beer, wine and soda. Everything you need to create the perfect picnic!
