About Ballyhoo Hospitality
Hospitality is what we do and who we are. Founded in 2018 after a combined 35 years in the business by husband-and-wife partners Ryan and Anna O’Donnell. Ryan is a veteran restaurateur and chef, Anna the operations director, and between them they have worked just about every restaurant position there is. Ballyhoo Hospitality champions the qualities that make a neighborhood restaurant great. The heart-felt greeting when you walk in the door, service that makes you feel cared for, and a warm ambiance that encourages you to relax. Whether it’s the American-inspired cuisine at Gemini, the southern Italian favorites at Coda di Volpe or the refined nostalgic American at Walton Street, Ballyhoo restaurants offer thoughtful, inspired food and drinks that satisfy in memorable ways again and again. We don’t have customers at Ballyhoo Hospitality restaurants, we have guests. Welcome to our home.

Open since 9/9/09, husband & wife owners Ryan & Anna O’Donnell watched Ryan’s culinary school business plan come to life. Over six years later, the American restaurant in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park continues to be a fixture of neighborhood dining. The quiet sidewalk patio along Dickens Street allows for seasonal al fresco dining. Awarded 3 Stars from Chicago Tribune food critic Phil Vettel, and the recipient of a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand distinction three years running, Gemini Bistro truly is Lincoln Park’s "Neighborhood Gem."
Featuring American cuisine with French and Mediterranean influences, Executive Chef Jon Keeley‘s menu is inspired by comforting classics with approachable sophistication. Chef Keeley took over kitchen operations at Gemini Bistro in April 2014 after working as chef de cuisine at Michelin starred Bonsoirée.
