Contemporary American | Lincoln Square, Chicago

The food was outstanding. Initially an excellent scalllop dish, then an amazing corn soup, a salmon graced salad, then an incredible pasta dish with a smooth creamy sauce. Finally a choice beef fillet. Also 3 deserts. Definitely felt there was enough food which doesn’t always happen at high end restaurants. The decor is a bit stark. It’s BYOB which is refreshing. Will definitely return. More

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
