In town for business recently, I was looking for a place to sit at the bar, have a glass of wine and dessert. I had heard they had very good flourless chocolate cake and an interesting by-the-glass wine program from a friend, so I decided to give them a try.
The flourless chocolate cake was very good. It was served with a Grand-Mariner cream fraiche and a mandarin orange sauce. The wine was also excellent. I had a very good glass of petite sirah. As with many by-the glass wine programs, however, the glasses were on the expensive side.
The bar staff was a friendly and the atmosphere good. What made the evening, however, was how friendly the bars "regulars" were. They engaged me (a single traveler) in conversation and made me feel part of their community for the evening, all without any pressure to join in if I didn't want to.
Next time I'm in Chicago, I would consider going back to try their non-dessert food.
