"We enjoyed a perfect evening with friends at the windows overlooking Rush Street. The sushi grade tuna was fabulous! Our server was extraordinaire with expert knowledge of the dishes and ready to recommend wine pairings. The chocolate cake dessert was decadent! The only disappointment was the time it took them to bring the bill... a bit of a letdown after such great service."

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

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!"
