About Us

In July of 1993, Rick Roman, Nick Pyknis, and dedicated staff members formed a new hospitality management company, Infusion Management Group, to direct the operation of The Signature Room at the 95th® and The Signature Lounge at the 96th®.
To ensure a successful transition, Infusion Management Group created a market-driven approach to announce and establish The Signature Room at the 95th® and The Signature Lounge at the 96th® as the premier dining and entertainment destination in Chicago.
The Signature Room was awarded the “Business Impact of the Year Award” by The Greater North Michigan Avenue Association, an award presented to the business with the most innovative ideas and contribution as a corporate citizen. With consistent accolades such as “Most Romantic Restaurant” and “Best View,” The Signature Room and Signature Lounge have become part of the quintessential Chicago experience.

Upscale dining and a menu of contemporary American cuisine lifted the popularity of the restaurant with Chicagoans and visitors alike. In 1996 The Signature Room was named Restaurant of the Year by the Food and Beverage Equipment Executives. It has been voted one of “America’s Top Tables” by Gourmet Magazine readers consecutively since 1997 and in 1999 Rick Roman received the Restaurateur of the Year award from the Illinois Restaurant Association. The Signature Room just won its 22nd Wine Spectator Restaurant Award of Excellence; an award the restaurant has been honored with every year since 1994.
In 2018, The Signature Room at the 95th® celebrated its 25th birthday. As they looked back on the years past, Roman and Pyknis marveled in their successes - being a part of the Chicago restaurant community, running a successful fine dining restaurant, and establishing their business as both a “tourist must” and a local favorite.
