Einstein once said “To keep your balance you must keep moving.” In this vein the Albert strives to embrace the eclectic and the seasonal. With an eye on aesthetic, our food and our cocktails serve to playfully present the familiar in a distinctly creative fashion. We express our craft with global influence and Midwestern ingredients. In a space that honors the surreal with stunning art, lively energy and warm hospitality- the Albert aims to school and to stimulate.
