Park restaurant at the north end of Chicago overlooking the main lake within Lincoln Park offering modernised dishes
A very agreeable visit on a Sunday for brunch. Beautiful, wooden panelling inside with an open kitchen and completely warm service made this a very picturesque place to have a meal overlooking the lake in North Chicago. Actually the three course set brunch menu was more akin to a three course set menu lunch lunch which I found pleasant but with its strength being the modern design of the food and in some cases holding too many components on the plates and less potentially being more here. Lower moments were the dry amuse bouche cake (hot and less filling nibbles, even olives I think would have been better here), the soured beer syrup to go with the pork sausage and the veloute that was spiced but seemed flat to my palate. However, the good moments for me were the shrimp endive for its freshness and the dessert of chai ice cream, the latter stretching the imagination more.
Overall, it was very good value for money at $35 for the set menu, in a very nice spot of Chicago with a charm in the front of house hospitality.
