Chicken & Waffles from SPHSCHAUMBURG, IL. (April 13, 2022) — Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel announces the grand opening of its brand new restaurant, Schaumburg Public House, in the former Sam and Harry’s space at 1551 Thoreau Drive North.   Schaumburg Public House’s new concept draws on Schaumburg's past history of cultivating the rich farmland that made up its long midwestern heritage. The main event will be held on April 20, 2022 at 10:30am. 

The grand opening will include a ribbon cutting and speech from Schaumburg Village President Tom Dailly. Schaumburg Public House is an approachable urban brasserie featuring local beverage and food from northern mid-America. Schaumburg Public House’s inspiration stems from the cider mills and orchards of Michigan, creameries of Wisconsin, and the Illinois craft-beer brewers.

“As one of the hospitality jewels in Chicago Northwest, we are very excited to welcome Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel’s new restaurant concept,” said Heather Larson, President of Meet Chicago Northwest. “Schaumburg Public House embodies the spirit of our region’s roots.”

Schaumburg Public House offers hand-crafted dishes with regionally grown ingredients reflecting the creativity of our Northern Mid-American heritage to comfort your senses and your spirits.
