Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell invites you and a guest to join him in Chicago, Illinois for an unforgettable dining experience at his exclusive restaurant, Lovells of Lake Forest!
Lovells' stately continental conservatory dining room, along with several lounges decorated with Apollo memorabilia, is housed in a three-story French colonial mansion. Greeting you upon your entrance into the main lobby is a mural of "Steeds of Apollo," which was gifted to Captain Lovell by actor Tom Hanks. You will continue to be amazed as you admire the collection of artifacts throughout the restaurant. Your experience will be a memorable one as you privately dine with Lovell in his exquisite wine cellar. You'll also enjoy seasonal American cuisine with a contemporary continental flair while discussing space exploration with one of its most famous pioneers. The night will end with a photo with Lovell, providing you with a permanent memento of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Lovell is a veteran of four space flights, including the first manned space rendezvous, the last Gemini flight and the first manned voyage around the Moon. His final flight into space was adapted for Hollywood in the movie Apollo 13, where he was portrayed by Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks.
