We spent a beautiful weekend in Chicago. Embeya was overcrowded by any means with the Lalapalooza crowds. If fact in talking tight the staff, their numbers were down for the weekend. Honestly, I think we lucked out. We had the opportunity to really ask questions and not feel our server was rushed. It was a glorious night and we sat outside, not too cold, and definitely not too hot. They have a unique cocktail listing and an extensive wine list. The meals consist of small plates both hot and cold and then larger plates. For the two of us we had one cold and one hot small plate and then one large plate each...this being said, Embeya serves family style so all the food is meant to be shared and tried by all at the table. We experimented with foods we normally wouldn't have in Iowa, and were extremely impressed.
