The philosophy at Perennial Virant is ‘eat what you can, and can what you can’t.’ This means we preserve vegetables at the end of each season to use in the future.
Chef Paul Virant's restaurants are built upon his guiding philosophy of making the ingredients – their origin, production and quality – the full focus of his culinary approach. Embracing the Midwestern seasons and utilizing methods of preservation allow guests to always expect a menu that showcases local flavors and ingredients in abundance. No other chef working in America today utilizes preservation as robustly as Chef Virant. He truly captures the peak flavors of each season and allows his guests to enjoy them year-round.
Private dining at Perennial Virant means you will enjoy a customized menu, tailored to your preferences, allowing you to enjoy the best the season has to offer. We are available for group reservations as well as full buyouts. Please contact us directly to start planning your next event.
