We went to The Portage the first night we arrived in Chicago. The food was excellent. We started with an appetizer of bacon wrapped figs. Delicious! I had the chicken which was such a large portion that I had to box part of it. My husband had seared scallops which he said were excellent. They have a large wine list, but we did not have any. The last bit of food we had was the best crème brulee I've tasted. The waiter was attentive enough to take care of our needs, but not so intrusive as to disrupt our meal. I'll go back. I would recommend others try it.
