Aquitaine
Chef and owner Holly Willoughby's restaurant brings local and fresh fare to Lincoln Park diners. Expertly prepared seasonal dishes are her forte, and at this American bistro, you can find dishes ranging from the popular apple cider braised pork shoulder to a braised Cornish game hen. The quaint dining room holds 36 seats, and yet manages to keep an extensive wine list to complement its flavorful menu. Don't leave without trying their amber cake, or one of their seasonally-inspired tarts.

Elate
Chef Michael Noll's River North restaurant presents diners with sophisticated-yet-rustic American cusine. Locally-sourced ingredients make this Michelin-rated restaurant a wonderful place for anyone, from regulars to hungry newcomers. Sustainable meats and fresh vegetables make up a diverse menu, which ranges from the popular Elate burger, with apple bacon to the Guthrop Farms pork porterhouse. The oak interior of the dining area is brightened by floor-to-ceiling windows. Grab a drink at their marble bar, where in-house drinks like the ‘Smoking Gun’ are made, and wine is sold by the glass.

The Tasting Room
The Tasting Room is known around the West Loop and throughout the city as a top choice for a wine bar destination. The modern interior of this Randolph Street spot features spectacular views of the Chicago skyline. The extensive wine menu complements a versatile menu of upscale American nouveau comfort food. Tasting Plates like the ‘Espana,’ with bacon-wrapped dates and Iberico and Quince, goat cheese stuffed peppadow peppers and chorizo come highly recommended.  Their boutique cheese menu brings cheeses from across the globe, and is complemented by a list of craft charcuteries.
