Wine Bar | West Loop, Chicago

Food was delicious. Server was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend going elsewhere for dessert after dinner. We ordered the deconstructed chocolate cake to share between three people and we each got one bite. It literally looked like someone just sprinkled some cake crumbs on a plate and then served it.

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
