The Plate • Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared: a good meal
25 - 50 USD
This cool wine bar cuts a stylish figure with its pale walls, gorgeous blonde wood, and sun-flooded dining room. Combine that urbane setting with polished service and a simple, but perfectly executed menu and you have one consistently great Chicago spot. Grab a seat at the long, L-shaped bar, the best perch in the house to ask a zillion questions—or just dig in as the small plates begin their march from behind the counter. The menu may be small, but it still packs a big punch-what's available is seasonal, diverse, and extremely fresh. A cold and creamy gold tomato gazpacho features tart strips of roasted eggplant and cool cucumber; while a deconstructed strawberry shortcake arrives in layers of luscious basil caramel and sweet berries.
