MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Tucked away from the buzz of the Magnificent Mile, Bistronomic is a great place to cool your tired heels. Jaunty red awnings beckon brightly, and the revolving door spins guests into a warm room that’s focused on the bonhomie of dining with friends. Oxblood walls, gray banquettes and a central bar play up the bistro feel, while the kitchen conveys creativity with fresh renditions of tasty classics. Rusticity and elegance come together in a fillet of Lake Superior whitefish that is pan-seared to golden-brown and matched with spring ratatouille, preserved lemon and puréed eggplant. Exquisitely crisp feuilletine is a glamorous upgrade to the classic Kit Kat bar, folded with hazelnuts, bittersweet chocolate and finished with a sweet-tart orange sauce.
