Andrew Zimmerman's warm, elegant West Loop stalwart is a destination for constantly changing dishes like crisp-skinned trout, chicken with sausage bread pudding and creamy foie gras capped with sour cherry gelee. The bar program, under Griffin Elliott, turns out well-balanced drnks, while Arthur Hon's wine list is among the city's best. No time for dinner? Try some of Zimmerman's exceptional charcuterie in the bar.

This is easily one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I first came for Chef Week in April and was absolutely blown away. The next time I visited was for happy hour. They have all their sides, a red, a white, and a rose for $7. Furthermore, there is an old fashioned, French 75, and Moscow Mule listed for $7 on their happy hour menu. Definitely something worth checking out. Everything served here is worth every penny.
