Upton Forty-Three



Chef Erick Harcey's vision of Midwest meets Sweden comes to life at Upton 43, located in Linden Hills. This highly praised eatery combines Swedish flavor with French technique for distinctive (all day) brunch and dinner menus, the staples of which are the pancakes and the meatballs, of course. Decor here is as minimal as possible — blank white walls and tables, rows of sleek, modern booths — so the dishes stand entirely on their own (as they should, this restaurant takes presentation very seriously). This is where to be if you want a full culinary experience.
