Shawn McClain’s moss-colored, Asian-tinged house of Zen is one of the only upscale dining experiences Chicago vegetarians can truly call their own. This is a great thing for dinners out, but it may be an even better thing for brunch. Here, there’s no worrying that bacon will be strewn over every plate (unless you count shiitake bacon). And with dishes like hen of the woods mushroom pate with Vidalia onion marmalade, and an organic duck egg with smoked potato puree, bacon is the last thing you’ll miss.

The two cocktails we ordered here with our dinner were very good. The menu is actually much more extensive and intricate than I was expecting it to be. The food, however, wasn't as great as I expected it to be. It was definitely worth the trip though. Ambiance was not up to par at all. It looked very cheap. Additionally, the air wasn't high enough, so it felt a bit stuffy inside.
