The gist: The latest from chef-owner Stephen Gillanders (S.K.Y.), this South Loop emporium serves up seasonal, coastal European and Mediterranean fare within walking distance of McCormick Place (plus offers private dining rooms for special occasions). A bright, airy space greets diners, as do welcoming hours—daytime and dinner service run seven days a week here.
The food: The kitchen team places an emphasis on the wood-burning oven and grill, with signature plates ranging from black truffle puff bread to scallop tagliatelle and grilled branzino. For dessert, try the banana budino cake with bourbon and granola, and when it comes to drinks, explore the in-house vermouth program, showcased both by the glass and on tap.
How to book: Reserve via Resy.

The kitchen’s global influences show their stripes via a concise yet sophisticated morning spread, with standouts like Wood Fired Brussels Sprouts with piquillo agridulce, housemade Bucatini Carbonara, Steak and Eggs in Purgatory with fiery Calabrian chili, and Deviled Eggs Florentine leading the charge. Save room for Banana Budino Cake alongside signature espresso drinks courtesy of Sparrow Coffee.
