We have not been in a restaurant since Covid began. Tonight, fully vaccinated and masked we decided to go to our favorite restaurant. And it totally met our expectations. Sticky ribs appetizer delicious. The rolls with chocolate butter, creamy butternut squash soup, fab salad and...mahi mahi. And all staff masked, gloved, and customers spaced. Careful, clean, so friendly. Hailey, the pastry chef is super talented and helpful.
Pre-pandemic We had traveled up north to go to the gurnee antique mall. We looked for a great restaurant and we found one! What could be better than fresh food and chocolate enhancements. The name of this restaurant says it all. I started with cocoa spiced butternut squash soup. Followed by crusted salmon (hint of cocoa) with fabulous roasted brussels sprouts. Don't worry - there are plenty of entrees, salads, and sides for non-chocolate lovers as well. Although we did have a dark chocolate fondue for dessert. And they have cocoa infused butter with fresh baked rolls. As important as the food - The staff is superb. So efficient, fun, kind, and accommodating. And the decor is hip and tasteful. Wood tables and floors, a modern gas fireplace with purple stones is the centerpiece of the space. Purple napkins are the accent in the table settings.More
