Chez Moi is a unique French bistro located in the heart of Lincoln Park at 2100 North Halsted.<br /><br />Chef and Owner Dominique Tougne, the former Executive Chef of Bistro 110 in Downtown Chicago, brought all the best cuisine from France along with the finest selection of French wine, reminding you of a true Parisian Bistro. <br /><br /> 'Chez moi" means my place/home. <br />So don't hesitate, open the door, have a seat and enjoy fabulous food just like if you were home.<br /><br />A Private Dining Room is available, "The Chef's Room", for your private event can accommodate up to 35 people.<br />Next time you are at Chez Moi stop in the Chef's Room and take a look at all of the jackets signed and left by prestigious French Chefs for Dominique. <br /><br />Chez Moi's famous dishes include traditional cuisine from all around France like The French Onion Soup, The Tarte aux Lardons, The Cassoulet Toulousain, The Canard à l'Orange and the delicious Gâteau Breton. <br /><br />

"This is a neighborhood treasure. The ambience is lovely. The food is always so well seasoned and presented and the service is just the right balance of being helpful and also not intrusive. Best bread ever also."

We’ve turned a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. North Italia is our love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, we’ve learned a thing or two and we’re approaching perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. Every day, we start from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for our Bolognese. Our pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap gossip sharing delectable chef creations. Every neighborhood would be lucky to have a place like North.

"The pasta was overwhelmed by globs of sauce. The chicken parmesan was ordinary and fairly tasteless. The food here used to be consistently tasty and well presented. I guess this North no longer matters to the Fox group. The service, however was topnotch and way above the quality of the food. If you go, ask for Frank!"

"We arrived twice to find our table not ready. The female, wonderful manager managed the potentially annoyed waiting groups by giving each person a glass of proseco and chatted with everyone in a most engaging way. The food was worth waiting for from appetizer to entree--all well presented and innovative"

As a gastro-lounge, Sable Kitchen & Bar will do for hand-crafted cocktails, spirits and wine what the gastro-pub has done for beer: pairing seasonally-inspired cuisine with an artfully designed cocktail, spirits and wine program. Sable’s menu fuses traditional cooking techniques with a modern flair that seeks to highlight the harmony between cocktails, spirits, wine and cuisine. The bar menu will focus on snacks, medium sized plates and brick oven flatbreads while the dinner menu combines small, medium and large plates to encourage sampling and sharing. With a commitment to working with independent Midwest farmers and purveyors, the menu will draw inspiration from local and organic ingredients—everything from seasonal produce to free-range meats and sustainable seafood. A sleek and sexy space, Sable is a refreshing update on the glamour of the 1940’s, as old Hollywood charm mingles effortlessly with modern industrial touches and classic Chicago warmth.

"The service is haughty--uninterested and very very erratic. The food is very good, but ill-timed when the first order takes 3 minutes and the second tales almost twenty. Yes it is small plates but this is the big deal here in Chicago now and other places do it better."

"nice varied menu but everything is pretty ordinary--especially the fries that are included with each sandwich. If you ant to get a beer it is fine..but in that neighborhood there are bars with better food and just as good a vibe."
