The philosophy of the menu at Bistro Bordeaux is an expression of our French culinary heritage, for which we have a profound admiration. The support of our local farmers allows us to use the freshest produce and seafood, just as one would find in the markets in the south of France. The menu showcases the freshness of these pure ingredients through simple, flavorful combinations.<br />As the passing of fall brings day light savings time with early nightfall, we are always excited to welcome back the great comfort food dishes typically found in bistros; the first taste of the “Coq au Vin” and the pervading perfumes of the long cooked “Cassoulet Toulousain”, come to mind. It is, in our opinion, this style of cuisine that offers the clearest definition of traditionally rooted French fare<br />We hope you enjoy the eating as much as we enjoy the preparation in the kitchen and wish you all "Bon appétit"!<br /><br />The team at Bistro Bordeaux<br />

Stephanie Izard, James Beard "Best Chef: Great Lakes," and Food & Wine "Best New Chef 2011," opened Little Goat with BOKA Restaurant Group in December 2012. Following the success of Girl & the Goat, Little Goat Diner serves the Izard take on classic diner offerings. <br /><br />Adjacent you'll find Little Goat Bread, offering pastries, grab 'n' go lunch items and fresh Stumptown coffee throughout the day. Bread is available for purchase daily - perfect for picking up a loaf on the way home to make dinner. You can also purchase merchandise and Stephanie's line of sauces and rubs, The Flavor, at Little Goat Bread.<br /><br />Located within Little Goat Bread is our bar - where craft beer, wine and cocktails are served. <br /><br />Reservations reflect only a portion of our available seating and hold a seat in the diner whether at a booth or our skylit communal table. If you can't find a time slot that best suits your request, we invite you to walk in and join us!<br />

"We enjoyed our early dinner at the Little Goat -- found the food to be good -- portions were just about the right size -- great selection of locally brewed beers
However, our beer order got messed up and the server seemed to not believe us when we told him "something was really wrong". turns out HE had suggested a Gose (weird beer & not appropriate at all for the person in our party who had asked for a suggestion) and then HE gave it to the wrong person at our table. It was resolved, but left a poor impression."

Welcome to Chef Art Smith's signature restaurant, Table Fifty-Two, the home of Southern hospitality in Chicago. Whether you are dining in the high-ceiling elegance of the upstairs dining room or the cozy, gathered-around-the-hearth comfort of the downstairs dining room, you will feel the warmth and welcoming spirit of Table Fifty-Two. His cuisine, sourced from the finest organic farms in the Midwest and ranging from Low-Country Shrimp with Stone-Ground Grits to Pistachio-Crusted Chicken Breast with Coconut-Ginger-Chili Sauce, Table has received raves from the public and food critics alike. Chef Art approaches cooking and dining the same way his mother and aunts and grandmother did, in the grand tradition of the South: use the freshest seasonal ingredients, prepare them lovingly and share them with your family and loved ones.

"We had been wanting to eat at Table 52 for some time and had heard great things about it. It was SOOOO Noisy !! The service seemed a bit disjointed. Although they advertised valet parking, there was no valet outside ... and it cost us $25 to park in the garage across the street.
Generally we found the food to be of interest but TOO MUCH MEAT (the portions of meat were huge) served with only a little bit of vegetables. The wine list was extensive but expensive.
Having expected a calm, romantic experience, we were disappointed especially by the noise ... and also taken aback a bit by the numerous diners there in old jeans and t-shirts! We will not be returning there."
