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

**PLEASE NOTE** ALL PATIO SEATING IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. OUTDOOR SEATING IS NOT GUARANTEED.<br /><br />Homestead is a literal farm-to-table restaurant featuring rustic, yet elegant cuisine from executive chef Chris "Chip" Davies; specialty cocktails, wines, spirits, and beers from beverage director Patrick Henaghan; and desserts and breads from executive pastry chef Chris Teixeira. <br /><br />New for Summer 2014 is a retractable awning for outdoor dining during rainy days. <br /><br />The rooftop patio of Homestead features 80 outdoor seats with full views of our L-shaped 1,000-square foot organic rooftop and vertical hanging gardens. There is over 2500 square feet of edible produce and herbs which is incorporated into all of our dishes and cocktails. <br /><br />The light-filled second-floor interior air-conditioned room at Homestead features an additional 60 seats at tables and another 12 seats at the bar.

"We started our holiday evening with guests from the Burbs at Homestead. After an afternoon in the sun, it was lovely dining amid the rooftop garden on a beautiful evening. The stylish heat lamps absorbed the chill nicely leaving us all quite comfortable. All of the food is scrumptious. We highly recommend starting with the bread basket. From there each of us had our favorites... mine was the soft shelled crab, but others in our group were savoring the scallops and the short ribs. The service was stellar!"

"Love this restaurant. Decor is edgy with great art. Menu is so much more sophisticated than your typical Mexican faire, absolutely delicious, and artistically presented. Now if they could just get their act together on the service. Even though we were early and the restaurant was not crowded, the service was painfully slow. Also, the parking validation was a complication causing further delay."

"Lovely weather complicated an obviously overbooked evening causing a long wait. The manager provided a bottle of wine for the table which definitely saved the evening. Service was great once we were seated."

"Although we love to experience all Chicago has to offer on the restaurant scene, Devon has become our "go-to" spot when we do repeat. We look for delicious fare, beautifully presented by professional, engaged servers, in a pleasant and comfortable dining atmosphere. We have never been disappointed at Devon. Indeed we always depart smiling at our marvelous dining evening. On this occasion, we were in one of the private rooms alongside the main dining area which, along with Dan's engaging and stellar service, made the evening quite romantic!"
