      Evan Roth-Howe recommended Bistrot Margot Inc
      Some of the best French cuisine outside of the motherland. The meat and fish are succulent and simply buttery, and the French onion soup is easily the best I've ever had. Pricey, but worth it.

      the small house from all the afterwork business dinners and dates. Sit upstairs for a more intimate setting and definitely order the MAC and CHEESE, it slays all competition.

      Jason, Table fifty-two is within $50 plates and the owner/chef was originally Oprah's chef. The meals are southern-style and all have a flare of greatness to them! Best of LUCK!

      Sara Benson recommended Trenchermen
      Inside a gorgeous historic 20th-century building near the busy corner of Damen, North and Milwaukee Aves in Wicker Park, the subterranean Trenchermen is classy without being pretentious. The food, ... read more
      with the executive sous chef having trained under Daniel Boulud and other kitchen superstars, is outstanding, with attention paid to every detail. The menu of New American innovative dishes for sharing isn't too long, but just about everything is fantastically memorable, especially the pickle tots with red onion-yogurt whip and the lamb ribs slowly braised with date molasses. On the cocktail list are vintage tastes like the Bijou and Chicago Fizz, along with this week's newbies from the mixologists behind the long bar. It's date-worthy on the restaurant side, easy-going for groups on the bar side.

    • Telegraph Wine Bar2601 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, Illinois
      Pro 2014
      Susan Lee recommended Telegraph Wine Bar
      Telegraph is 3.5 stars for me because of the service. If the service was better, I would bump my rating up to a 4.5. The down side was the service was really slow (it took about 30-40 minutes to take ... read more
      our entrée orders and another 30-40 minutes to get our food), and when we brought it up at the end of our meal, it turned out the guy we thought was our waiter was only a sommelier. That means there was no waiter. However, if you can stand the long wait, the atmosphere and food are both exceptional. The restaurant is a wine bar with some regular tables as well as high tables if you don’t want to sit at the bar. The décor is fun and they have amazing food. The charcuterie plate says it serves 2 people, but we actually split it (along with the sausage) among 4 people. The plate came with very fresh venison tartar, pork pate, fois gras, pancetta, and a delicious jam spread. The sausage was super tender and juicy and went really well with the small slices of grapefruit provided. In terms of entrees, you can’t go wrong with the duck meatballs or the fennel pasta. Just keep in mind that portions are on the smaller side and the dishes are on the higher end (entrees roughly $22-26), but the quality of the food is definitely worth the extra cost.

    • Union Pizzeria1245 Chicago Avenue, Evanston, IL
      Barbara Kossy recommended Union Pizzeria
      I had a beer and flavorful authentically Italian pizza at the bar with some long-lost high school pals. The room was active but didn't feel crowded, even though the place was full. The pizza was ... read more
      great! I had one with anchovies, capers, and other stuff I can't remember. Very tasty and crispy crust. I love the big pizza oven right in the middle of the room with the huge stucco dome. Fantastic. The bar is U-shaped so you can watch the room, or the street. Bustle and fun, but I could still always hear the conversation. I'm heading back. Maybe tonight!

      Fork is comfortable, quiet enough for conversation, and had great food! I was feeling celebratory, so I ordered a tasting flight of syrahs and totally enjoyed comparing the three wines. I can't ... read more
      remember just what I ordered, but each dish was satisfying. The restaurant is steps away from the Old Town School of Folk Music, and the perfect place to eat before a show. It's not a cheap eats place, but is worth the bit extra you pay.

      It's not fine dining, but it's as good (and as dense) as pizza comes.

      The home restaurant of celebrity chef Jimmy Bannos, virtually everything I've tried on HoS's menu is superb, from the po' boy sandwiches to the gumbo to the etouffee, and the service is excellent. Best of all, they've got Abita Turbodog on draft!
