“Great value, BYO and good food”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

I wasn't blown away by the meal here but it was still satisfying. The real allure of the place is the great value with BYO and no corkage fee. This allows you to have a pretty good dinner that is easy on the wallet. The signature hanger steak was the best thing we ate.

Put your name in line. Go to the neighborhood bar. Return when they call you cell. Open your own bottle of wine. Enjoy a unique and high quality restaurant in the best restaurant city in America.

“Fantastic.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I scored reservations last Sunday and had an incredible meal! I normally don't care for octopus, but it was amazing. (We splurged on the garlic fries simply due to a hangover, and they were just what I needed!) The apple & plub salad wasn't spectacular, but was still tasty.
I had the branzino for my entree, and it was one of the best dishes I've ever had. My date had the pork loin, which he enjoyed, but I know he was jealous of my fish!
We didn't have room for dessert but enjoyed our meal (and the wine we brought) very much. I'm a production designer and thoroughly loved the decor... the bathroom is just as cool as you think it will be. If you're in Chicago, you HAVE to eat here!
