Renovations transformed the interior of MingHin’s Grant Park restaurant, 333 E. Benton Pl. with updated blue and gold decor and an addition of an exterior door. MingHin has been a staple in New Eastside since 2015, drawing customers from all over the Loop with consistently delicious Chinese cuisine.
“The remodel includes new chairs and new tables. We will continue to get more new chairs and tables in a month,” said manager Leo Ho. The newly added tables and chairs are of a contemporary, but classic style, using both dark and light wood. New blue leather booths are paired with works of red and gold wall art that were commissioned from Chinese artists. Complementing the blue seating are fresh light fixtures adorned with classic blue Chinese drawings.
“The remodel was completely for style,” Ho adds. “We designed the paintings here ourselves, but they were made in China.” Ho said. The artwork includes a vivid painting of red Koi fish set against a silver background that is hung in the main dining room. There are also geometric works made of a golden metal throughout the newly decorated dining room, in both framed paintings and structural designs.
As part of the renovations, a new revolving door on the south side of the restaurant was added, and glass barriers surrounding the exterior of the restaurant were opened to allow better access to customers.
