Although critically-acclaimed chef Laurent Gras no longer runs the kitchen, L2O's prix-fixe-only menu reigns on as one of the best in Chicago. Diners enjoy expertly-prepared seafood and sashimi of the highest quality, sourced from around the world. L2O's bread service, featuring anchovy rolls, bite-sized pain au lait and bacon-infused twists along with house-churned butter garners rave reviews from even the most carb-fearing. — Jess Kapadia, 2/19/11

Most amazing meal of my life thus far! Justin was a great lead waiter he was hilarious and knowledgable. Great sommelier with great suggestions! What a great experience the tasting was superb!!
Ask for Justin Arnett who is EXTREMELY knowledgable on EVERYTHING here from the foods, their origins, the preparations, down to the uses and the "why" for each glass, utensil, etc. Highly recommended!
4 of 4 stars. "A lot of words have been used to describe L2O-- minimalist, compelling, any superlative you care to name-- but until recently, playful was not among them." Phil Vettel, Chicago Tribune
If asked to get the supplemental scallop with truffle, do it. Worth every dollar.
2013 - 2 Michelin Stars
The bacon twists are extraordinary ... I requested them more than a couple of times :-P not to take anything away from the excellent Singular tasting menu
The smoked salmon with artichoke, pumpernickel, smoked crème fraîche, and beet is out of this world!
Try the Pastoral Salad (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Ahi tuna (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Forest mushrooms from our 100 Best list: Founding chef Laurent Gras left. Michelin took away two stars. When we ate this wild and brooding mushroom dish at L2O, we couldn’t have cared less.
The bathroom has a fishtank with little crustaceans... Cute.
Outrageous sweetbreads for a restaurant specializing in raw fish. Although you hear not to fill up on bread, go ahead and butter those mini pain-au-laits and bacon twists. They're unparalleled.
If u want to try modern jap cuisine, do not miss this restaurant. I had the most original fish?? shabu shabu!
L20 is Laurent Gras’s restaurant in Chicago.-Eric Ripert, Top Chef Judge
Try the Surf And Turf and spot it on Foodspotting!
Ever heard of akagai, sagoshi, kanburi? They’re all fish served up at this elegant Asian-inflected seafoodery. Don’t miss the house-made anchovy brioche or the delectable praline soufflé.
Poached halibut is a favorite — lush and buttery with a whimsical parsley meringue disk that dissolves on the tongue.
Do a tasting menu with wine pairing. Expensive, but worth it. Their wines are amazing -- the best I've ever had -- and they pair so well. Food & service were both great.
eat the wagyu beef. Best thing I've ever eaten. Period.
