The food is great, as always. However, a bit put back by the dog at the table next to us. Now, I'm sure they positioned it as a "service dog" (how else would it get inside) , but it was a designer dog who was passed around laps. Really? We don't need dogs inside restaurants. This is out of control and not acceptable. (as far as I can tell by Chicago laws). People go out and leave their children at home; dog folks should do the same. More

We had a delicious brunch at Hutch on a Sunday. Made a reservation on Open Table and had no wait. The service and food were excellent, and the place is super cute. The veggie benny was so good (the base is a fried green tomato!), and the cheesy potato casserole was delish, too. The smaller tables are super close together, so if private conversation is your goal, this might not be the best place for it. More

Had lunch here. The service here sets them apart...attentive without hovering. I don’t know how they do it. Yes, the steaks are great but they do other things just as well. I had the hamachi as a starter and it was perfect -as good or better than you’ll get at most sushi places. My beet salad was perfect, and the presentation was beautiful. More
