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



  • Poached halibut is a favorite lush and buttery with a whimsical parsley meringue disk that dissolves on the tongue.
  • 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 couldnt have cared less.
  • The bathroom has a fishtank with little crustaceans... Cute.
  • L20 is Laurent Grass restaurant in Chicago.-Eric Ripert, Top Chef Judge
  • 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
  • Ever heard of akagai, sagoshi, kanburi? Theyre all fish served up at this elegant Asian-inflected seafoodery. Dont miss the house-made anchovy brioche or the delectable praline souffl.
  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • eat the wagyu beef. Best thing I've ever eaten. Period.
  • 2013 - 2 Michelin Stars
  • 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.
  • food's excellent but short of spectacular. Alinea is a superior choice in the price range. wine flight is mediocre
  • If u want to try modern jap cuisine, do not miss this restaurant. I had the most original fish?? shabu shabu!
  • Try the Surf And Turf
  • Food is excellent. Service is superb.
  • Best meal I've ever had in my life. Try the tasting menu. Each dish is a work of art.
  • Super small portions don't pair well with the high prices.
  • Check out L2O Restaurant as seen on No Reservations
