    Using street food as inspiration, the West Loop’s Proxi celebrates global flavors and ingredients through a thoughtful American lens. Guided by traditions but not restrained by them, Proxi travels the world one boundary-blurring dish at a time. At Proxi, the world is Executive Chef Andrew Zimmerman’s oyster — literally and figuratively. Using iconic street food as a jumping off point, Zimmerman creates dishes that honor those signature bold, funky flavors while instilling his own culinary style. His menu freely wanders through Asia, India, the Middle East, and Mexico and beyond but feels completely at home in Chicago.
