Now that the Air & Water show is over, we all know that fall is just around the corner. It will be a busy September for us and we hope that you will join in these fun events after Labor Day weekend.
We are excited to be sampling our tasty dishes to go with the great wines & spirits at Millenium Park for the Bon Appétit Chicago Gourmet on Sept. 30th in Millenium Park. We will also take part of the Dine Around Special 3-course dinner menu for $35 during the whole month of September, offering a unique dining experience as well as a chance to earn a free ticket to the event!!
Where can you sample 270 different wines from around the world for $28? This year’s best wine tasting event will be held at Buckingham Fountain from 9/7 to 9/8. You will need good food to pair with the wines, so look for us in the restaurants section serving savory bites and sweets.
This will be our second year taking part in the Green Tie Ball festivities to raise money to help beautify Chicago expressways, greenways, & neighborhoods. Get your best green outfit on and get ready to eat and drink well at this year’s Alice in Wonderland themed ball
We love Chicago theater and art scene. So we’ve packaged a pre-dinner special at our restaurant before the Magic Flute opera at the Harris Theater. It is featured in Daily Candy.
Last but not least, we are proud and honored to be reviewed and rated by Chicago Magazine and Zagat with “very good” and “blown-away” ratings. We will continue to strive for excellence as we develop our exciting fall menu.
This hip uber-urban extension of the popular French Market stand offers traditional banh mi and soups at lunch and a more ambitious upscale menu at dinner. That’s when brightly innovative turns on classic Vietnamese dishes stretch globally, as in a quinoa salad of hen of the woods (mushrooms) and roasted baby eggplant with roasted garlic shallot purée. The same goes for the grilled confit octopus on cuttlefish-ink rice spiced with Japanese togarashi. Cao lau — fresh egg noodles to mix with braised pork cheeks, Chinese broccoli, pork rinds, fish cake, and housemade sambal—makes a fine shareable entrée. Impressive wines.
From Zagat: “Banh mi me, baby!” implore “blown-away” boosters of this West Loop Vietnamese sister to the French Market stall where “interesting” fare boasting “bright flavors” tastes “upscale” but comes at “downscale prices”; “helpful” servers elevate the “basic” wood and steel space, but with limited seating, you may need to “get there in off hours” to snag a spot.
