Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming response to our Thanksgiving Dinner offerings! We are looking forward to serving everyone, thanks again and we apologize to everyone who has called the last few days when we have been booked solid.
If your plans change, please let us know so that we can your table available to others. We wish you all a peaceful and joyous holiday!
The one major change to the menu is the fish offered: When striped sea bass looked tight this week, and Carl offered us some Gigha Island Cucumber Halibut, we jumped. Sustainably farm-raised off a tiny island in the North Atlantic, this is easily the best fish I have ever seen in Chicago from the Atlantic!
