MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Margeaux Brasserie is one swank spot. Housed inside the Waldorf Astoria, this restaurant marks the first Chicago venture for the popular Mina Group, led by esteemed San Francisco-based chef, Michael Mina. The space is bright and airy, with light streaming in through the large picture windows and lots of luxe velvet and leather details. Kick things off with perfectly caramelized duck wings a' l'orange. Diners may then choose to linger over dishes like the warm tomato Tatin, paired with puff pastry, Camembert and pistou. While a bone-in rack of lamb takes satisfaction to the next level when coupled with stewed chickpeas, piquillos and fennel, turnip with roasted lamb jus and a croustillant filled with braised lamb rib is the very picture of decadence.
