We tried Devon for lunch during Chicago Restaurant Week. They offered a 3 course meal for $22 -- very reasonable, given the quality and mount of food provided.
As for the starters, both the lobster bisque and the spicy gumbo were a hit. The gumbo was among the best we've had in Chicago. The grilled salmon panzanella was a dinner-sized portion of fish on a bed of well-dressed spinach, along with bread and tomatoes, of course. Definitely would have it again. The shrimp and white cheddar grits was also good, but maybe just a bit too much bacon (if that is possible.) The triple chocolate mousse cake was a disappointment -- it was very dry.
Regarding service, the server was attentive although the kitchen was a bit slow, especially given the few number of diners there for a late-ish lunch (1:30 PM). I don't think that the low number of patrons was a function of the restaurant; instead, Chicago is in the midst of a frigid streak and people are avoiding going out unless necessary.
All in all, it was well worth the price and worth visiting again.
