  • A festive, one-of-a-kind Chicago experience, best for less formal celebrations & putting clients at ease. Goat cheese & bacon enrich a fried green tomato Napoleon w/ sun-dried tomato & olive tampenade
  • Three-cheese mac, pistachio-crusted chicken, chili-crusted pork chops with pickled peaches and buttermilkfried chicken are some of the rib-sticking offerings.

  • Oprah Winfrey's chef, Art Smith, opened this restaurant a few years ago. The cheese biscuits alone are worth the trip.
