Foursquare Tips

  • Follow @JohnTheBristol on twitter for daily menu updates and other news
  • Try the basque cake from our 100 Best list: Thankfully, this warm cake with a golden crust and soft middle is the only dessert pastry chef Amanda Rockman keeps on her menu year-round.
  • The Bristol chef Chris Pandel does things with animal parts most others wouldn't dare and the experience is heightened because of it. [Eater 38 Member]
  • duck fat fries all the way
  • Local grower focus with an edge.
  • The secret to the duck fat fries' addictiveness isnt just that theyre fried in duck fat. Its the fact that theyre executed perfectlycrispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
  • Basque cake!
  • get the roasted bone marrow. not quite as good as st. john's in london, but the closest i've found.
  • huge micro-brew list and try the monkey bread!
  • Get the Nutter Butters. Now.
  • Try the Warm Basque Cake
  • One of the top Chicago dining picks to visit during the 2012 NRA Show from the Nation's Restaurant News editorial team!
  • I would eat salad everyday if it tasted like their apple salad!
  • The wife and I had an incredible meal here. Both the food (raviolo and brisket in borscht sauce were favorites) and the cocktails (Vieux Carr) were fantastic. The staff was great. We'll be back.
  • Amazing food! A worthy try! So much fun
  • The half chicken was delicious but unfortunately the fries were way overrated and the rest was just ok. Surprised it has a Michelin BG.
  • For all adventurous eaters, you cannot be mistaken at Bristol - the basque cake is to die for. All while drinking an inspiring glass of wine.
  • We have a hard time moving away from signatures like the heirloom apple salad and the egg-and-ricotta raviolo, but its worth it to try the specials (marinated beef tendon salad recently blew us away)
  • We love Chris Pandels signatures, like the salad of heirloom apples and the devastatingly delicious egg-and-ricotta-filled raviolo, but its worth it to try the unusual daily specials.
  • Duck fat fries. Need I say more.
