You can't go to avec without having the dates - simply beautiful!!
Go with someone who likes to share so you can get the variety of flavours!
The only down side is that you cannot book so often have to wait - which I must say is well worth it!

Rotating menu of small, shareable plates in new american style. The country ham and whipped brandade are great. The dates/meatballs (don't know what they are really) are excellent. Saw Anne Burrell here last night, and a guy fell off his chair (probably because of the delicious food), so it must be good. Also, the all-wood room is very cool.

Service is great and it doesn't serve any mediocre dishes. The chef(s) here understands flavors and food textures and how to put them together with exceptional results. This is a small restaurant that squeezes so much into their little space that it is amazing how efficiently it is managed.

What is this idea in Chicago to not take reservation?? This makes the hole evening less enjoyable. This restaurant is very small and there is no place at all to wait. If you do not want to take reservation, at least, make a place where you can have a drink during the waiting!.

However, the food is very good and the ambiance was great.this is a nice place to go with friends because you share your table. Not a place for a romantic evening because there nothing romantic about waiting 1 hour outside during the winter.
