Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it had no ill effects on the fox.
That’s because the fox has a more tasteful form of curiosity- one that is smart and selective. It is a sentiment that inspired everything on our menu, from our craveable food to our signature copper-mug cocktails.
So, go ahead. Be curious. Try something new. There’s a bit of refined curiosityin everything we serve; a pinch in every dish, a dash in every drink, from creative dishes to crafted cocktails.
That’s the curious formula for a unique gastropub experience.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner. I was thinking there would be more choices at the chef’s table and for the overall price, we should have been able to get seconds of the meat choice.

To start the staff was great! Very attentive and nice. The location perfect, as we were walking the Mag mile to see the Christmas lights afterwards.
The food however was a bit disappointing for Thanksgiving. Salads were good and the desserts were nice. Then it fell off a bit with Luke warm soup, and mushy deviled eggs. Main courses, prime rib over cooked, ham over cooked and dry. The turkey was fine all the sides were also Luke warm and the stuffing while it had good flavor it was so mushy.
I’m afraid I wouldn’t go again. At $45 a plate it was really not worth it.

This was my first experience at this restaurant. We were meeting relatives from Germany for the first time and there were 9 of us and we were trying to meet them close to where they were staying. When I called to make sure the reservation went through on open table Eucenia asked if there was a special occasion we were celebrating. I told her why we were coming and that we just wanted to be able to hear each other during our lunch. She seemed excited for us as well. When we got to the restaurant I found they had a table for us in an intimate setting off the floor which made it feel very homey and was the perfect setting for this meeting. We were able to talk easily and get to know each other in a setting that felt like being inside a home. The waitstaff and everyone were very accommodating and didn't make us feel rushed at all. The food was excellent, and we loved the vibe of the restaurant. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone I know. It was a wonderful experience and I can't say thank you enough to the restaurant for making such a wonderful first impression.

Good brunch. We weren’t in a rush thankfully, but the kitchen was moving quite slowly. The brunch mimosas are great. We split a savory and sweet item, the biscuits and gravy dish and the pancakes. Excellent choices if you want a taste of both.

Tried this place while on vacation. Had one of the worst Cosmos, never had one before which tasted so strongly of Rose’s lime juice. A Gastropub should be using fresh lime juice. Not sure why this 4 ingredient drink is so difficult to make. The wait staff gave the feel of being extremely busy but the restaurant was not full. I had to send back the salmon which I added to my Brussels sprouts and kale salad as it was completely raw in the middle. I finished my salad and told the waitress to skip bringing it back. Only to learn it had been left in the oven and couldn’t be served to anyone! Thankfully they removed it from the bill. Our daughter had the 7 layer chicken salad. She was very disappointed. Corn and black beans tasted like they came straight from a can. Dressing didn’t have much flavor. The two remaining people in our party were happy with their choices - French dip and chicken Caesar salad. With so many great dining options in Chicago, skip this one.

This a nice somewhat casual restaurant in downtown Chicago. I had a delicious crispy chicken sandwich. The food was good and our party of 6 was probably in and out of there in 90 minutes on a busy Friday evening in summer.

We had reservations for noon, we were seated at 11:50, and no one came to our table until 12:15. They were very understaffed and our server could not keep up. The food was good.
