MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Thank chef-to-the-stars Art Smith for raising the stakes of the local dining scene with this relaxed bistro. In 1871, this carriage house home is said to have survived the Great Chicago Fire. Today, the cozy and well-appointed dining room makes the most of its parquet floors, Louis XV-style chairs, welcoming bar, and open kitchen where Southern-leaning fare is prepared in full view. Deviled eggs are a solid staple, elevated ever so slightly with pickled peppers, and the juicy, crunchy fried chicken is a hit for a reason. Signature desserts, like the towering slice of hummingbird cake layered with banana and pineapple or the scrumptious bread pudding, are sized to share. This place becomes even more charming when the weather warms and the patio opens.
