What's included

  • Take a seat at the bar or on the 40-seat riverfront patio and enjoy:
  • Two tasting flights featuring three wines apiece, which Time Out Chicago praises for including "generous pours," such as the sparkling wine flight featuring Jeio Prosecco with notes of banana and passion fruit or the red wine flight with a unique Cotes du Roussillon from Domaine de Bila-Haut tasting of blueberry, plum and vanilla; other options are listed on the wine list
  • A selection of three gourmet cheeses and three charcuterie choices; we recommend sampling the Spanish manchego reserve, the creamy French Camembert and the sharp, nutty pecorino from Calabria, Italy, paired with the cured serrano pork loin from Spain, wild boar sausage, and the salami toscano cured with garlic, red wine and sea salt made by Berkeley's Fra'Mani salumeria and praised by The New York Times

wine was excellent

It was a bit dark in the bar area..... too dark to read the menu

The food, wine and atmosphere were all great. Our waiter was very knowledgeable.

great service and delicious food and wine

Feb 10, 2014 Kristin Illinois, United States

The atmosphere is nice. The wine flights were generously portioned and the charcueterie platter was fantastic. We got to pick our own cheeses and meats that came on a board with some freshly sliced apple, quince and fig and wafer crakers that did not take away from the taste of the meats and cheeses.

We also enjoyed a spicey lamb burger that was delicious. Although we were there in the winter, the atmosphere indoors was warm and cozy. I can't wait to get to the outdoor seating in the summer.

Hard to say what was most enjoyable as the food was equally as good as the wine, and the beer selection was nice since my hubs is not a wine drinker.
