Chicago’s Pierrot Gourmet
On today’s Travel Thursday adventure we’re headed to one of my favorite US cities…Chicago! On a recent trip to Chicago I had the opportunity to tour The Peninsula Chicago and sample the dessert menu of on-site restaurant Pierrot Gourmet. Here’s my travel advice to you…if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Chicago (and are not on a tight budget) I would highly recommend The Peninsula. If you’re on a tighter budget and can’t stay here, I would suggest at least stopping by for an afternoon treat at Pierrot Gourmet. The little French cafe is absolutely adorable and with outdoor seating available it is the perfect afternoon stop during your tour of Chicago!
I can’t say enough good things about the beyond delicious selection of desserts and the talents of Executive Pastry Chef Dimitri Fayard are out of this world. The creations he dreams up for the holidays are simply amazing and every dessert I tried was outstanding!
Since this is a French cafe it only seemed fitting to try a sampling of the macarons and while I enjoyed quite a few of them, my favorite was the Peanut Butter & Jelly macaron…it’s just a flavor combination that goes well together!
Whether you stop by in the winter to enjoy the outdoor ice rink, enjoy the children’s holiday tea with Mrs. Claus, take part in a springtime brunch at one of the on-site restaurants, or book a spa treatment in the gorgeous spa, your time at The Peninsula Chicago is sure to leave you with many fabulous memories!
I received complimentary desserts but all opinions are my own!
After an afternoon of yummy desserts I was definitely ready for a run along the Lake! What is your favorite dessert? What is your favorite thing to do in Chicago?

I’ve been to Chicago once and loved it. When I go back I’m definitely heading to this dessert spot!
I’m originally from Chicago, but haven’t been there since I was a child. My family and I are planning a trip there, and I’m really looking forward to the eating part! I will definitely have to check out The Peninsula and Pierrot Gourmet!
I have never stopped at Pierrot Gourmet, but now it’s on my list the next time we head to the city. We’ve done Christmas Tea at the Peninsula and it’s phenomenal. It is a beautiful property. I love reading about things in my backyard. Glad you enjoyed these spots!
These look amazing! Will have to stop the next time I go to Chicago.

Adding this to my list for the next time I’m in Chicago! I love shopping all the vintage stores in Wicker Park.
I haven’ visited Chicago in over 20 years. I am due for another visit.
This looks amazing. I have not been there, but they look delicious.
