Fodor's Chicago 2014
Bin 36 Review
This hip hybrid—a fine-dining establishment, a lively wine bar, and an excellent cheese purveyor—serves wine and cheese pretty much any way you want it. For wine, you can choose by the bottle, glass, half glass, and as flights of multiple 2½-ounce tastings. For cheese, options are by individual sample or multiples—or as an ingredient, as in the lamb meatballs stuffed with Manchego cheese, romesco, and mint. The menu similarly encourages sampling, with lots of small-plate grazing choices. Entrées, such as roasted whole duck and ahi tuna carpaccio, are helpfully listed with wine recommendations. An all-glass west wall and 35-foot ceilings lend a lofty look to the sprawling space, which can be noisy. Since it's open all day, it's also a good choice for between-standard-mealtime nibbles.
