Chinese | West Loop, Chicago

The service was beyond great. One in our party had a gluten allergy and each staff member who served us were constantly conscious to mention if the dish was gluten free or not. It just made the dining experience effortless and without question nor having to wait to see if she could or couldn’t eat what was just served. The food was of some of the best Asian meals I’ve ever had. I got to explore dishes I’ve had before, but with an unexpected and pleasant twist. t’s a great break from all the deep dish pizza we were trying because this food is surprisingly light. Definitely a must try. More

Japanese | West Loop, Chicago

Nice change of pace for a middle-aged couple celebrating their anniversary! 6pm reservation on a Sat (6pm is when the kitchen actually starts). That said, attentive service, helpful with menu suggestions and cocktails. Food came promptly--suggest getting there before 7pm. Place was pretty crowded by the time we left around 8pm. Most of the crowd was probably half our age. While the food was very good, I wouldn't say anything knocked our socks off, but each dish was focused on the main item which is typical of the Japanese style (do one thing really well, and make that the focus). Example dishes: goma ae made with broccoli rabe instead of the usual cold spinach and very good; spicy king crab salad with just enough bite to call mild; chili tuna maki was tasty (for a 3rd gen Japanese-American who's not into raw fish); WASHUGYU which is basically skewered steak but marinated really nicely, grilled and extremely tender. For the cocktail, I had the CHICHIBU REBELLION. I'd describe it as a Manhattan-like drink but made with gin instead of bourbon. By the way, the staff were nice enough to provide us each with a glass of a complimentary sparkling wine because of our anniversary. Nice touch. Overall, I think this is meant as upscale bar food, which for that is really good. That said, our mainstays are in the north suburbs, and I'm talking both Japanese and other ethnic cuisines. Once you factor in the drive and cost for that (parking, time)--we took Uber in this case--that really tips the scale on the overall cost for the evening. Glad we went, but it's not someplace where we'll necessarily return ourselves but would recommend if you want to try someplace new. More

My wife and I love Blackbird! We just did 2 dinners there in 4 nights in Chicago. The service was extraordinary. The doses were creative and surprisingly brought tastes together that we have never experienced. Our waiter Claire N. Was delightful and brought us tastes from the tasting menu, beignets and venison purée that were out of this world. My crispy sweetbreads with yogurt and wilted broccoli was outstanding. The wines by the glass were quite fine as well. Chicago is a very clean Windy City but Blackbird dining is all the reason we need to go there. More

I come back to Beatrix again and again for their delicious healthy salads and entrees. Having been healthy - that then paves the way for what I truly CRAVE at this place - the Oh My! Caramel Pie. It is addictive and amazing - my whole family loves it and it has supplanted the desserts I used to make for them. More

Visual factor knocks it out of the park. The stunning decor makes up for any possible shortfall (there were only a few minor ones). The bandade appetizer was a bit dry and crumbly, as was the caramel cake dessert. Also there was a shortage of hot fudge in the sundae. All other appetizers, sides, and entrees were excellent. There were many good choices, and all were large enough portions to share. The service was on the spot but not overbearing or pretentious. I highly recommend experiencing BLVD. More
