MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Ask passing foodies to name one of Chicago’s most elegant and sophisticated restaurants and they’ll probably say Grace. This room is as handsome as it is urbane and provides a supremely comfortable environment for those spending an evening discovering the culinary wizardry of Curtis Duffy. You’ll be presented with a choice between two seasonally changing menus: the vegetarian “Flora” is very good, but the omnivore “Fauna” is more impressive in every way. Opt for the wine pairings and you’re finished with decision making for the night. At the center of each precisely prepared dish is the kitchen’s talent for combining wonderful flavors. Trying to keep track of each delicate ingredient will nullify the benefit of the wine, so instead just marvel at the clever presentation and dig in. The cuisine is intricate and elaborately constructed, with herbs playing an integral part rather than merely acting as garnish. Occasionally your taste buds will get a little zing or slap, perhaps with the odd Thai or Vietnamese flavor, as the courses fly by. This style of cooking is uniquely labor-intensive, so if you want to learn more, be sure to take advantage of their offer of a postprandial kitchen tour.
