Given chef Curtis Duffy's curriculum vitae — his work at Alinea, the two Michelin stars awarded to Avenues restaurant on Duffy's watch — there really wasn't any question whether Grace, Duffy's first solo effort, would be good. Just how good....
Next, the shape-shifting restaurant by Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas (the principals at world-famous Alinea), dazzled diners with its inaugural "Paris 1906" menu. For an encore, the kitchen went about as far afield as possible. To Bangkok, in fact. "We...
I've been meaning to review Beverly Kim's food ever since September's Chicago Gourmet. I was mightily impressed with her contribution to the food festival: a seafood panna cotta topped with mango gelee and a pair of chilled mussels. Kim further boosted...
It's impossible for me to view Paris Club, the hip French bistro that opened in River North five months ago, without feeling a sense of loss. Paris Club, you see, replaced Brasserie Jo, and I've loved that restaurant ever since it opened in 1995...

Frozen spheres of cheese. Ham-wrapped baguettes containing exactly nothing. An air-filled foam of carrot that still manages to taste like the most intense carrot you've ever eaten. Part museum exhibit, part history retrospective, Next's latest menu, El...
On behalf of the residents of Williamsport, let me offer thanks to all of the firefighters and emergency personnel who responded to the fire at Wolfe’s. The residents want the responders to know how much their courage and heroism meant to...
