Finally got to visit Chicago!
Having heard so many great things about the city, it begs the question, “Why didnt I go and visit sooner?!” Coming that weekend for the purpose of a wedding, I came with some friends and suggested that we hit up this restaurant; I’ve been wanting to try it for some time. If you do want to go, my suggestion is to make a reservation like 4-6 weeks out. It was pretty tough to find a reservation, but to be fair it was for 11 people so I guess I’ll just put a ‘YMMV’.
A really easy going and chill atmosphere, it’s definitely a restaurant that is there to make sure you’re taken care of. Even as it got closer to closing time, it was noted that the kitchen would stay open until we didn’t want to order anything more. I dont think I’ve ever heard that before; quite awesome!
Favorites were definitely the wood oven roasted pig face, roasted cauliflower, grilled baby octopus, crisp braised pork shank… ok, there were a lot of solid dishes. Feel free to be adventurous and just let the people there help order for you. My only negative, and it might have been that night, but the green beans were four or five pinches too salty but outside of that, the meal was good!
