Mediterranean | Gold Coast / Streeterville, Chicago

Food was delicious...the burratta salad and bruleed cheesecake dessert especially. The restaurant itself is quite elegant, yet has a contemporary and relaxed vibe. The best part of the visit was the service. Our waiter from Belluno was charming, gave us our space, yet we became friends before the night was over. Hope to return on my next trip to Chicago! More

Our locale of choice for anniversary and birthday celebrations; beautiful midcentury decor, and exceedingly attentive service. Some portions might be smaller than folks anticipating typical American restaurant portions could expect, particularly with the recently-revamped menu -- absent explicit contrary guidance, expect quality to be emphasized over quantity.

French | Winnetka, North Suburbs

Quite frankly, this was the best tasting menu food wise I've ever had. And in the last year and a half I've experienced 10 Michelin stars plus worth of tasting menus. The food was simply exquisite from darn near start to finish. The stumbles were courses that were just great. More

Bandit
Bandit
American | West Loop, Chicago

A polished-casual restaurant & bar that combines the charm and character of a local neighborhood bar with the sophistication and quality of an upscale, chef-driven restaurant. The design of Bandit is a juxtaposition of rustic materials, vintage paraphernalia, and polished décor. It is lowbrow meets high style; glamour meets grit with warm ambient twinkle lights, combined with edgy neon bar signs creating an inviting feel to the restaurant. Nostalgic, “divey” elements are harmoniously married to elevated attributes throughout the concept in both look and feel, as well as the food and drink presentation. The menu is comprised of eclectic American comfort food with Executive Chef Shane Graybeal behind the creation of the dishes. Chef Graybeal brings his rustic American style of cooking to Bandit with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients. More
