Fodor's Review

Locavore obsessives should look no further than this farm-to-table gem facing Lincoln Park's seasonal farmers' market, the Green City Market. The fourth of Boka Restaurant Group's trendy restaurant empire (Boka, Girl & the Goat, GT Fish & Oyster) teams up with sustainability poster boy chef Paul Virant (also of the suburban restaurant Vie) to create a rotating menu of beautiful, locally driven dishes like braised venison meatballs and pan-seared diver scallops. The restaurant's motto is "eat what you can, and can what you can't"—hence the shelves of house-made preserves that grace the walls and are incorporated into the menu in everything from the maple-sherry aioli in the preserved pumpkin beignets to the jams and sauces and the bitters used in the cocktails.
