About Pink's

Our passion is for great food and beverage: together Greg & Kristina have traveled to Italy, Costa Rica, Mexico, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Denmark & all over the US seeking unique the best cuisine, craftiest brews, & finest spirits – furthering their interest & desire to be involved in the culinary scene.

After years of backyard parties and entertaining family & friends, the couple purchased their first Churrasco in 2013 & over the course of the next couple of years, Rockin’ Rodizio, their Texas BBQ/Brazilian fusion catering company grew & eventually evolved into their first restaurant: Chicago Culinary Kitchen. Greg & Kristina have combined their love of BBQ & Craft Beer to share it with others.

Chicago Culinary Kitchen was also the perfect platform for the two to experiment with all types of cuisines, including seafood! Now they want to share their love of seafood, craft cocktails & delicious brews with you at Pink’s!

“We believe great food starts with high quality, fresh ingredients. Our kitchen prepares everything fresh daily using the finest meats, seafood, produce & seasonal ingredients. Our Raw Bar is stocked with the finest oysters and seasonal seafood available. We approach every dish with enthusiasm and creative energy, paying attention to every detail to make each dish unique, delicious, & memorable. At Pink’s, we have created a fun & relaxed atmosphere with touches of the Salt Life from our travels that we hope you will enjoy!”
