About Us

Take a Seat at Our Table

Stationed in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, Virtue is a Southern American restaurant that leads with a culture of hospitality & kindness. We’ve worked hard to create a warm, honest & thoughtful space. We pride ourselves on unpretentious service, timing & most importantly providing great value. At Virtue we use heritage techniques to create some familiar flavors, & some new ones. We hope to see you soon.


“Where there is no struggle there is no progress”
- Frederick Douglass

We didn’t get here of ourselves or by ourselves. We stand on the shoulders of our ancestry both distant and near. The ones who gave birth to who we are and what we become. Without their struggles, their commitment to freedom, and their spirit of hope, we would have no place to dream, no place to explore, and no ambitions to follow. We are humbled and forever grateful for their tireless fight for equality.

We are grateful to those that have challenged us in a space that slows us but also strengthens us.  

Thank you to all of our loving and passionate family, co-heirs of faith, extended family, friends, mentors, investors, creatives, contractors, vendors, counselors, and teammates both past and present. Without their sacrifice and belief none of this could be possible.

Erick Williams and Team Virtue
