When chef Art Smith’s Table Fifty-Two closed, people mourned the fried chicken. Lift you black veil, Chicago, because it’s back at Blue Door Kitchen & Garden, in the former Table Fifty-Two space, along with a few of Smith’s other beloved southern dishes and a whole new menu driven by a seasonal farm-to-table philosophy. Daily deviled eggs are served with farm fresh toppings, while purple potato gnocchi comes with carrots and peas for a bright dish might remind you of the flavor of a light fried dough. Ask where any of the ingredients come from and the servers are quick to tell you, even when it comes to the hard stuff like seafood (it’s flown in every day).
