We had never heard of this restaurant, but friends wanted to meet us and I am always willing to try something new. The restaurant is located three blocks off Michigan Avenue on Chestnut in a condominium building. A small lit sign marks the restaurant and you enter through the building lobby.
We started with wonderful martinis and moved on to appetizers and salads. The artichoke fritters with an aioli sauce were on a special menu. Beautifully fried with a fabulous sauce. A marvelous starter. Three people had the Boston lettuce salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts. I tasted it and it was perfectly prepared with just a light touch of dressing to match the softness of the lettuce. I had beef bourguignon which was tender with lovely carrots, fingerling potatoes, spring onions and a wonderful red wine sauce. My husband's whitefish with a lite butter sauce and capers was to die for. I would definitely order it the next time we dine at the restaurant. Our friends had the coq au vin and a veal scallopine dish. Both raved about their dishes. We also ordered a bottle of wine, the owner suggested the house Chardonnay. Normally I am not a big fan of Chardonnay, but this was perfect with our dinner and for a member of the ABC club, anything but Chardonnay, I was pleasantly surprised. Dinner is served nightly, reservations are a must on weekend. There is no lunch service.
