Gemini Bistro Celebrates the Season with Good Bites and ZooLights!

Gemini Bistro ZooLights Prixe Fixe Menu
Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 10:37am

Lincoln Park’s Gemini Bistro is keeping ZooLights goers toasty with festive food and warm drinks this holiday season!

Located just three blocks from the Lincoln Park Zoo, the cozy bistro is offering a three-course prixe fixe ZooLights special for $35 in honor of the 20-year-old holiday lights legacy.

Start your evening with a choice of roasted tomato soup with white cheddar grilled cheese, spiced pumpkin risotto with chèvre and toasted pepitas, or an autumn salad with squash and maple vinaigrette and continue the festival of flavors with a main course option of loch duart salmon with savoy cabbage and smoked bacon, free-range chicken with mushroom ragout, or steak frites with bordelaise. Executive Chef Jon Keeley is determined to make sure you leave with a full belly…perhaps that will “shake when you laugh like a bowl full of jelly.” (Have we yet made it clear how much TLT loves the holidays??)

And in a dessert course fit for Santa, diners can enjoy house made cookies and a coffee or hot chocolate to go, making a tasty mobile treat while celebrating the season at ZooLights!

Added bonus: Leave your car at the restaurant (valet is $10) while you hit up ZooLights. Save yourself a half hour of circling the neighborhood for a spot to open.

Reservations for the ZooLights prixe fixe are highly recommended and may be made by calling 773.525.2522 or online at
