Stopped out here for dinner after attending FOBAB on saturday the 12th. It was within walking distance from the Plumbers Union Hall building tha hosts FOBAB. A group of 4.
Atmosphere: Clean and inviting establishment. Its has a rustic dinning area with a modern looking kitchen. Pretty fancy bathrooms too. Booths with "barn doors" that close guests in for a private meal. Also several large wooden community dinning tables. Unbelevable glassware for all types of alcohol.
Quality: Looks to be a high end dinning experience.
Service: Top Notch! The hostess was polite and seated us immediatly. Dealt with several servers during the meal, they all did well. Our main server was polite, very knowledgeable of the menu(both food and alcohol) and down to earth; this made the group feel as welcome as an honorary guest.
Selection: Really good menu. Really sampled alot of food for dinner. The menu offers multiple items from different regions of the USA and outside of the USA where the food is consider the premium. 4 types of premium hams, 6 different oysters, a $120 seafood platter that requires a 48 hour RSVP! Great beer menu and other alcoholic beverages. All waitstaff have been trained to answer and questions you may have about the booze. The beer pours are correctly done and impressive.
Food: We ate the pork rinds as appetizer, potted rillettes, charcuterie plate, bouchot mussels, farm chicken, and bread pudding for dessert. All the food was fresh, and amazingly delicous. The Charcuterie plate was not something I would normally eat and quite frankly out of my comfort level; it was awesome! We honestly ate way more food than we needed and all plates went back to the kitchen empty. We left the restaurant uncomfortably full, but very happy we were.
Value: It ended up caost each person approximately 35 buck a person wth tip included. Decent cost for a meal in downtown Chicago, especially when you factor in how good the food was and the excellant service! You must try this place out!
