The review:
After a few errands, we headed over to the restaurant and put our name in after work. This place is tucked in right off Michigan Avenue and was slammed early -- a great first sign in my book. After the 45 minute wait, we were seated outside at the perfect table with a cool breeze. What a beautiful night for dinner + red wine...FINALLY! We really loved everything we ordered (my personal favorite being the cauliflower). Their wine list is great too -- we will definitely be back here!
