Food & Drink


If rock-and-roll is religion, then Graham Elliot's funky new bistro is its culinary tabernacle, with menus affixed to vinyl records, and candles evoking "patron saints" from Michael Jordan to Grant Achatz. Snag a seat on the cobblestone back patio and take down some sockeye salmon w/ garlic & lardo, or just knock back tiki-inspired 'tails like the dark rum/key lime/orgeat Black Tai Affair, so potent nobody would even notice if Garth Brooks showed up wearing boots.For an even more intimate blend of sonic and culinary wizardry, we've worked with Chef Elliot to create Rock Your Palate: a special event featuring his four-course, music-inspired menu paired with cocktails from g.e.b. mixologist Ryan Brignole set to a live Americana soundtrack courtesy of Chi's own Van Ghost at Lincoln Park's Floating World Gallery.
