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.

Enso.<br /><br><br><br />In Japan, it means circle.<br /><br><br><br />In life, it stands for the moment in which your mind is free for the body or spirit to create.<br /><br><br><br />In Chicago, it is a place where you can sit back and relax in the presence of good company and good food. The philosophy behind the name allows us to give back to Chicago in a way where dining is not just about putting food into your system because you’re supposed to. It’s about satisfying your hearts desires through the palate. It’s fulfilling your taste buds with complementary flavors that absorb into your well-being and make you feel good about yourself. We build on the fundamentals of Japanese ingredients with our own personality. And present to you – ENSO Sushi & Bar.

Welcome to our Ristorante! <br /><br />Our menu is based on classic dishes that we experienced in people"s homes in Italy. <br />Some are family recipes and others we learned by cooking with friends back home in Roma.<br /><br />This menu is structured for either a classic or family style "tasting" dining experience, depending on what mood you're in! No matter which way you dine we do encourage you to share and to try each other's dishes.<br /> <br />I hope you enjoy the simple ingredient combinations and taste the spirit of Rome in Chicago. Always remember that if you've had something here before and you don't see it on the menu, just ask. If we can make it for you we will. <br /> <br />Buon Appetito!<br /><br />~Fabio & Letizia Sorano
