The gist: Chef Larry Feldmeier (The Albert, Sixteen) recently took the reins at this local gem, where he’s been putting forth seasonally spirited plates and, as of late, a tasting menu that’s made waves as one of the better deals in town (AKA eight courses for $125 with an optional $75 wine pairing).
The food: The menu showcases options like Fazzoletto Pasta with carrot and ricotta, Duck à
la Citron with chestnut and beet, and Chocolate Ganache with crème fraiche and orange. What more do you need?
How to book: Reserve via OpenTable.
Chef Larry Feldmeier helms the kitchen at this Bucktown mainstay, where he serves elevated American cuisine that he changes on the regular to reflect the season’s best. Take, for example, Endive Salad with beets and carrots or Roasted Duck with winter giardiniera (plus, a tempting medley of handmade pastas). For the full effect, opt for the eight-course tasting menu, a showcasing of the team’s dedication to pristine ingredients and thoughtful flavor combinations.
This Bucktown fixture is rolling out the proverbial red carpet this Thanksgiving, offering the take-out faithful a multi-course menu primed and ready for the holiday table. A Butternut Squash Bisque starts things off with a bang, followed by a Whole Peking Duck, Yukon Potato Gratin, Milk Bread with Red Wine Currant Jam, and other knock-out bites.
Cost: Packages start at $225 each (serve 4)
How to book: Order pick-up by November 18 via Tock.
