The newest Mercadito locations are the chicest and most modern additions to the restaurant family. Ample sized banquets accommodate large parties while smaller white quartzite tables and the soft wood floor and ceiling keep the atmosphere cozy. Exquisite details include rope screens separating banquettes, handmade pyramid-shaped copper lights illuminating the bar, and unique graffiti-style murals dressing the dining rooms. A massive bar area and lounge lets guests relax while taking in the stylish and upscale environment.

"Great mixologist and Great dishes with super friendly pro service in a cool interior. Music was too loud for my taste (on a Saturday evening), but still 100% enjoyable."

"Nice interior design and excellent mixologist. Food worth a try, some interesting items. Dessert sundae with the beer foam was weird to us, and the ice cream itself was very watery."

Catch 35's menu, written daily, lists around three dozen market fresh seafood choices. Upon completion of an unforgettable meal, dessert choices can be made from a vast array of unique, tantalizing pastries prepared fresh daily in their pastry kitchen. A perfect setting for an after work get together or a romantic rendezvous with that special someone.

"Sat in bar with 3 others. All 4 of our drinks were poorly prepared and watered down. Food choices very standard. Ugly sink/waiter storage area grossly in view of the whole bar. Friendly server."

With focus on the technique and craft of cooking, graham elliot bistro brings the "perfection of simplicity" to the table. Local, farm fresh ingredients help to provide a seasonal menu paired with hand picked wines, original cocktail creations and craft beers. Chef Elliot's genuine, approachable personality along with his love of food and music is the inspiration for the bistro.

"Sit at a long wood table in a fairly spartan, slightly cold (in the winter) room. Service was tremendous and the preparations were all quite fascinating. We had 5 course prixe fixe and the pork was a bit oversalted in my mind, but still tasty, and the other presentations tasted great. Mixologist preparations also quite fun."

Jeffrey and Sallie Buben&#39;s Woodward Table, housed in the historic Woodward Building is a concept that exudes a timeless feel with neighborhood charm. Located just one block from The White House, Woodward presents a &quot;table&quot; of dining possibilities with two eateries...the main restaurant with its creative and diverse American menu and Woodward Takeout Food, a sprite artisanal alternative for breakfast and lunch. The soul of Woodward Table&#39;s cooking involves creating seasonal iconic American dishes, a chef&#39;s contemporary approach and a regional repertoire of ingredients. Woodward Takeout Food, aka WTF, adjacent to the restaurant, creates a quick serve American breakfast or lunch for the busy Washingtonian, available to eat in or take out. Woodward Takeout Food is like being in a good cook&#39;s kitchen...a venue of sights and sounds with the bakery of the entire restaurant located at one end. Smell the fresh baked bread and other concoctions as you place your ord

From the kitchen to the bar, everything we serve is defined by a passion for exploring unique flavor combinations. Wood is more than a name: our wood-fired oven is at the heart of it all, mustering a dynamic menu of small-plate, American fare, made with the best ingredients the season has to offer. Though the dishes regularly change, they are defined by a few constants: meat is butchered in-house from humanely-raised animals; vegetables are drawn from family farms like Green Acres (North Judson, IN), Three Sisters (Kankakee, IL), and Spence Farm (Fairbury, IL); herbs are picked directly from Wood’s private garden; and all pasta and sausage are freshly made, straight from the Wood kitchen to the plate. We bring the same attention to quality and taste to Backwoods, our late-night Belgian fry pick-up window. Made from hand-cut Kennebec potatoes, twice-fried in the traditional Belgian style, and served with your choice of a dozen different house-made sauces, these aren’t your average f
