Description: TWO Restaurant and Bar The comfortable atmosphere, with artful second-life decor, makes it a perfect West Side neighborhood gathering place. Influenced by the quality and tradition of family run butcher shops, TWO sources from trusted, small mid-western farms. They are often the first Chicago restaurant to feature renowned items, such as the heritage Hampshire pork, on their menu. TWO chefs make all their bacon, sausage, jerky, cheese, sauces and pastas in house and are constantly exploring new and seasonal dishes to feature those ingredients.

“Fresh and homemade tapas dishes with great service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

From the grilled octopus to the age sirloin steak, the homemade pasta to the banana bread pudding - this restaurant was fabulous. Each of the dishes was simple, yet flavorful and was seasoned perfectly. The beets with burata and espresso martinis were delicious. Our server was a doll and the entire restaurant team made sure we always had fresh share plates and water. Great attention to detail on every level.

“Exceptional fresh and creative dishes”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The menu is made up of medium size dishes meant for sharing.Smoked salmon and cold potato salad is a must try. Fish, bacon and other meats are smoked on the property-all great favor not overly salty. Oxtail pasta dish is very creamy. It melts in your mouth.
Pork belly dish had a seared "bark" on it but was very moist inside.
Bread pudding and Rhubarb desserts were the perfect ending to a great meal.They were made on the property.
Strongly recommend this restaurant.One of the best small plate restaurants I have been to since the concept became popular.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went to TWO last week for my birthday dinner. We love to share plates to try as many plates as possible. We had a reservation and the restaurant was full by the evening end. The wine list is very long and they were out of several wines we wanted. The sommelier came to our table and apologized profusely, he then offered his own private bottle of wine to us to make up for the inconvenience. We ended up ordering 2 different. bottles and enjoyed both of them. He was very gracious and felt terrible about the wine situation. He actually sat at our table and had a glass of wine with us and we got his opinion on a variety of wines. We ordered a variety of small plates, the Charcuterie plate was very good. A nice assortment of meats and cheese. My family especially enjoyed the homemade beef jerky. I liked the pimento cheese and smoked fish. We also enjoyed the duck fat potato croquette. They were fantastic!. Another side was the roasted broccoli and cauliflower, another fantastic dish!. The roasted halibut was very good but I was getting full by the time it arrived. The mixed green market salad was good, lightly dressed and nice for warmer temperatures. We had a desert of vanilla bean angel food cake with whey ice cream and toffee which was delicious also. It came with a birthday candle in it. I also recommend sharing the dishes. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. We enjoyed our evening and would recommend it to anyone.

“Astonishingly good”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Extraordinary cooking in an attractive but unpretentious setting. All of the good reviews that you're reading here are right on the nose: don't eat here unless you like to share, but if you do, you'll be thrilled. The charcuterie plate is a must (especially the beef jerky). DEFINITELY have dessert. This was one of the most satisfying meals I've had in Chicago in recent years. I'll go back the next time I'm in town.
