A Look At Chicago's Ada Street

Keywords: Ada StreetZoe SchorChicago

Chicago is a city that often is more casual in its dining scene, but takes its food very seriously. Which is why the new Ada Street fits in so well. We spoke to chef Zoe Schor about the restaurant, which started primarily as a bar concept, but which diners have also begun to flock to for its food. "The concept is that it's a wine bar with a great cocktail program," said Schor. "We try to be seasonally inspired with our bar bites and small plates... I think when they first came up with the concept they didn’t know it was going to be so food-driven. Which I think is a function of the team we put together and how passionate we are about the food that we’re creating here."

The restaurant has also gained fans for a few unique programs meant to make the space feel like home — the music every night is played from a single record, and in the summer they put out ping pong tables, backgammon tournaments, and grills. "We’re doing it in a way that we’re having fun so our guests have a lot of fun," said Schor.
