An exceptional experience to be right up front watching the chef prepare each course. This is an intimate bar seating for 8 people and currently offer byob at no corkage fee, they are pursuing a liquor license. The only suggestion I would have is to have some background music. 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.
