French
Abundance abounds at LeTour, Amy Morton’s newest eatery, a decidedly American Brasserie in Downtown Evanston. James Beard Awarded Chef Debbie Gold’s menu is a modern take on classic French fare with signature Moroccan dishes and influences. The airy-open space seemlessly morphs between cocktail bar, dining room and event space.

The vibe is “Andy Warhol on the French Riviera”. We are big, bold, and buzzy! The “rotunda”/ round building we are located in, overflows with light from the floor to ceiling windows of the mid-century building which sits at the heart of Evanston’s downtown.

Located just blocks from Northwestern University, the Evanston Cinemas and the soon to be Northlight Theatre (Fall 2024) - the three driving forces behind bringing diners toEvanston.

This is the place to book any private event from 3-300.

    Amy Morton does it again! Visited twice in first two weeks. Great food, interesting cocktails, beautiful use of a unique space & a wonderful addition to downtown Evanston. And not too loud so a perfect place to take older guests. We will be back again soon for sure!

    We had dinner at LeTour on their 6th night open. It was a lovely experience. French cuisine with a heavy Mediterranean influence was a new and fun taste experience for us. Their wine selection leans to French and Continental entries, while menu cocktail selections are inventive and apropos for the food / evening. Enjoy!

    So glad this great space is now inhabited by a restaurant that will stick around. The service is great at Le Tour and the food is very good. We had the caesar salad, lyonnaise salad, steak frites, skate wing and chocolate mousse. Also a refreshing cocktail made with Italicus. We found the entrees a wee bit chewier than we expected and the bread a bit meh, but flavor and texture overall was excellent (esp. the frites!) and service could not have been better. Amy went out of her way to ensure my friend, who is allergic to garlic, knew what he could have from the menu. The ambience was great too, lots of nice art on the walls, toile around the bar now, and music that you could hear but easily have a conversation over. Just very well considered from top to bottom. It's a bit pricey, but with so many cheap student places in town, we're glad to have an adult choice. We will def be back.

    Dined just a few days after opening. Menu is probably just finding it's footing. We had a couple of good dishes (Lamb Couscous and Tagine of Chicken), but the three other entrees (Skate, Paillard of Chicken and Steak Frites) were mediocre, at best. Given how much we like The Barn and how much we liked Found - we were disappointed in the food. Service was outstanding.

    Excellent 'Country French' (not 'tweezer food!) and French/Moroccan food. Lamb couscous was wonderful. My husband's Paillard of Chicken was excellent. We liked Found quite a bit and the food at Le Tour is even better. A nice splurge and welcome addition to Evanston dining.

    Opening week dinner at Evanston's LaTour did not disappoint. Space is gorgeous with soaring ceilings and windows; both elegant and cozy. The French- and Morrocan-inspired menu was delicious, especially the Skate wing and Chicken Tagine. The cocktails and wine were outstanding and the service was perfect. Chocolate mousse with brandied cherry dessert was decadent and delicious (if a bit stingy on the portion size). Overall, a wonderful experience and we will be back.

    Love everything about this new spot. The food and drinks were the star. We both enjoyed the Camembert and 2 of the Moroccan dishes. All were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our waiter was super helpful in making suggestions. I loved the art and atmosphere of the space.

    Great atmosphere, friendly staff, really good appetizers (duck pate and snails) but mixed reviews on main courses. One of our chicken dishes was way too salty, and the other (Moroccan) was just so so. The steak was great, as was the burger. We’ll go back again, and try more on the menu-look forward to the oysters!

    It was day two when we went. They’re still working out the kinks so take this with a grain of salt. The service and timings were affected as a result though. The food was just okay. Variety was nice but the flavors were a tad flat. In a month I would guess things will improve greatly.

    First night of Amy Morton’s new restaurant! Everyone from Amy to bus staff were happy and eager to get everything perfect. And it was! A number of items on the menu were not yet being offered, so we’ll be back to try them. The fish soup was exceptional.

    Great new restaurant in Evanston. Did a great job renovating the space and fun to have Moroccan food, which is unusual. Don't gorge on the bread (which is served warm and awfully tempting). It's French cooking, so a full meal can be rich. Order accordingly. Recommend the chickpea starter and steak frites. Dijon chicken entree is also very good.
