This is the kind of place where you can sit and lose complete track of time. The service is outstanding. The food is scrumptious. We had the short rib and the celery root. We also had the hazelnut dessert. The combination of flavors and textures was impressive. The octopus in the appetizer menu was also delicious. The ambiance is dark and romantic. There is music but not very loud. All and all, a great place. We will definitely come back.
We experienced this wonderful, artful tasting for our 11th anniversary. This was our first Michelin star experience and rhey did not dissapoint. They were able to accommodate our no pork, no crustation, no alcohol restrictions without us feeling like we were missing out on the experience. I suggest splurging on the tasting to send your 5 senses into space! Wow! The textures, colors, tastes, omg, we are on to a different side of food! Not to mention the service! We received comp mocktails and our dessert with a choclate inscripted message to wish us happiness.
This is probably the best tasting experience I’ve ever had. The components in each dish serves a purpose that contribute well to the whole, which makes me ponder the chef’s original intention - well worth a Michelin star. As part of Chicago restaurant week, we ordered a four course meal for dinner. Cold appetizer is foie gras, shaved in an atypical style instead of chunked. It blended well with the fruit underneath, bringing out the taste but not the texture of liver fat. Hot appetizer is Cavatelli with black truffle. At first I was held back by the amount of olive oil in it, but it does not taste oily at all. In fact, the rich pungent flavour of black truffle mixes in your mouth with the Cavatelli. Main is pork neck bone with date spread. The pork neck bone is so tender I wonder if it’s sous vide style, but it says it’s slow cooked. It is delicate, and tastes different if you eat it with the date sauce, the mustard seed, or the cabbages. In fact, I don’t think it is a simple addition of 1+1+1 here, but pieces of a puzzle that makes up a picture. The dessert we ordered two separate dishes, mango ice cream and dark chocolate. Both are probably the highlights of the whole series, as we can probably still taste the deliciousness after three days. Service was top notch. In fact, we arrived half an hour before our reservation and was greeted and seated courteously immediately. The setting is perfect for a classy get together. The lighting is very conversational but probably a bit dark for taking photographs of the delicious meals, which is probably why most of the pictures on Google looked like a disaster. But it is a gem by all means.
