Let me just get this out of the way. Table 52 offers the BEST fried chicken and mac & cheese money can buy! My wife and I dined here for our 2nd wedding anniversary on our first trip ever to Chicago. Other than being merely satisfied with the pizza and beignets, the fried chicken and mac & cheese were worth... More

Brunch isn't something that really happens in the UK so whever we are in the US we always try to find somewhere for a great brunch. Some searches on TA and Google turned up this little gem! I had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles served with maple syrup. Quite frankly I'd died and gone to heaven, a-may-zing! Perfectly cooked... More

We visited with our three children (4,9,20). I was concerned that while they are well behaved, "children" would not be accommodated well. How wrong I was. The children were treated as valued guests. The food was amazing. We truly savored every bite. Our service was excellent. The staff was courteous, helpful, and anticipated our needs. The only downside is the... More

We had initially made a reservation for a party of four for a Saturday night. We had friends joining us last minute and I was able to adjust the reservation to a party of six, the host was extremely accommodating. The interior is small but very comfortable. The only thing lacking about the night was the service. Our waitress insisted... More

Dining at Table fifty-two will leave you feeling like you had been invited into someone's home and treated to some of the best southern-inspired cooking. Each bite was worth the calories and the service was outstanding from the start of our dinner until the end! Cheesy biscuits, fresh pea soup (delicious!), perfect asparagus (a side dish ordered as a starter),... More

We had brunch here on a cold, wet January day. We decided to walk from our hotel, The Drake, and by the time we got there we were chilled to the bone. Walking in to the warm, homey environment was one of the highlights our our trip. We each got the chicken and waffles and the fried chicken was the... More

Excellent choice while dinning in Chicago, This intimate restaurant is owned by Chef Art, former personal Chef for Oprah. The cuisine is southern in touch, and the hospitality/service goes right along with it. Appetizers of deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes were scrumptious and just right. The deviled eggs were light, smooth, creamy and the tomatoes crunchy with just the... More

I had really high hopes for this restaurant. I follow the food network and was always a fan of Art Smith. I did a lot of researching about this restaurant before committing to go. I would say the reviews were half of the population enjoyed it and half didn't. Unfortunately, we agree with the population that didn't. We decided to... More

Wow, where do I start?! We made reservations for an early Easter dinner and we showed up early. I was there with my husband and three boys ages 20, 18 and 14. The door was locked but someone came out right away and said they would be open in a few minutes. It was sunny out and we were enjoying... More
