Graham Elliot information
Each meal starts with insanely addictive truffle-oil-and-Parmesan popcorn. Chef Graham Elliot, one of Chicago’s young-buck gastro luminaries (and a TV star), then takes whimsy to new levels in such dishes as his foie gras lollypop coated in Pop Rocks. Set menus (modifiable for vegetarians) come in 12 or 15 courses. Adventurous eaters who appreciate trendy food in an industrial, rock-and-roll atmosphere will like it most.
Reservations are essential. Elliot also runs Graham Elliot Bistro in the West Loop, where more traditional, à la carte dishes are available.
