FIG & OLIVE extends an olive branch to Chicago with its flagship city location, situated on Oak Street in the premier Gold Coast luxury retail shopping district. Laurent Halasz, the founder of FIG & OLIVE, envisioned an urban space embodying his origins from the South of France, and the 10,000 square foot dining destination features a variety of unique spaces that capture this essence of the French Riviera. With natural limestone and white stucco walls surrounding an open-exhibition kitchen, an expansive lounge and bar, a crostini station, and an open-air garden terrace, this location is perfect for an informal or elegant gathering.

"Visually both the bar and restaurant hit the mark of urban sophisticate. Service is perfect and the food is gorgeous, inventive and tastes as great as it looks. Wine pours are generous and selection is varied."

Cafe Lucci’s motto, “Good Food, Good Wine, Good People,” is the distinguishing hallmark of this North Shore family-owned and operated restaurant, which is a favorite for neighborhood regulars, including many executives and professionals who hail from nearby corporations and businesses. Cafe Lucci also is a weekend and special-occasion destination for many folks who live in Chicago and have discovered an exceptional dining experience in Glenview.

". There appeared to be only 1 waiter servicing the entire room except for 1 or 2 tables so service was very spotty. The menu is so limited there is no reason to return."

Tanta is dedicated to sharing the flavors and culture of Peru with Chicago, serving authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages in an approachable, fun and casual downtown setting. We provide service that is casual yet knowledgeable, genuine and attentive, utilizing locally sourced products and vendors that are sensitive to sustainable farming and fishing.<br /><br />Tanta has two Chef’s Tables that each seat up to 10 people. These tables are located in our main dining room in between our open kitchen and ceviche bar which allows you and your guests to experience our chefs creating Peruvian cuisine while you dine.<br /><br />The menu, created by Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Jesus Delgado, takes diners on a voyage through Peru via its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and ethnicities that make up Peru’s culture.

"Peru is a blend of a variety of different cultures and the fusion food at Tanta reflects many of them. Tuna tartar atop pureed potatoes is a blend of unique flavors and textures and is not to be missed. Think of ordinary ingredients combined in delicious, creative ways and you have covered the menu. Everything is topnotch and the service matches."

"This used to be a great neighborhood restaurant with good food at good pricing. One of the best offerings was that a variety of fish could be prepared in a number of ways and included 2 side dishes. Also there was a delicious seafood salad. All that is gone. The menu change is dreadful. Now that same fish comes arrives without any side dishes lying unappealingly on an otherwise totally empty plate. Side dishes are huge so instead of what used to be a lovely portion of 2, one side dish is overwhelming and very pricey. The meal is now so overpriced and unappealing in preparation that I would surely skip ever going. There are much better seafood options in the neighborhood."
