Welcome to Nightwood. Jason Hammel and Amalea Tshilds, owners of Logan Square's Lula Cafe, invite you to join us in Pilsen -- at our open kitchen, on our patio, in our wine room, with the warmth and fragrance of applewood scenting the air.<br /><br />We are a farm to table restaurant, featuring local produce and sustainably sourced meats and fish on an ever-changing, handwritten menu. <br /><br />Spit roasted chicken, whole slow cooked pork, squash grilled over the open flame, a simple bowl of perfect fruit and sorbet. Hand in hand with the best farmers and craftspeople of the midwest, we cook with bold simplicity and care. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

"My wife took me to Nightwood for my birthday. We loved it! The chef has a unique approach with a strong focus on fresh fruits and vegetables. Even the meat dishes seem to feature creative vegetable creations accompanied by excellent meat preparations versus the typical meat focus.
Nightwood is not a vegetarian restaurant (although a vegetarian would love it). The fishes and meats are excellent, but the chef is a wizard with fruits and veggies"

Niu B is the second location of the original Niu Japanese Fusion Lounge on 332 East Illinois Street in Chicago. Niu B features not only their signature maki rolls, fresh sushi nigiris and sashimi, but also Japanese Robata Grilled Skewers. Our full bar features specialty Japanese whiskey cocktails and house infusions, as well as Korean Soju that pairs perfectly with grilled skewers. The interior is sleek and modern with the inspiration of 1930"s Japanese Izakaya Bar in Tokyo.

"Niu replaced a sushi place in the same location that was quite good, but I think Niu is a step up. They still offer good sushi but also offer a broad Asian fusion menu with a nice variety of Japanese and Korean dishes"

The sophisticated, elegant space of Acadia provides a perfect house for the simultaneously contemporary and classic cuisine from Chef McCaskey. Divided into a lounge space, dining room and private dining room, Acadia is comfortable and inviting, with natural elements throughout. Soaring ceilings and colors of warm neutrals, cool grays, chocolate and sage are peppered throughout the minimal space. An open kitchen and wine room reinforce the fact that Acadia is first and foremost about great food and wine, and attention to detail paid to both. A la carte and tasting menus are available, featuring McCaskey's contemporary take on Classic American cuisine. Attentive service, contemporary-classic cocktails and a global wine list round out the offerings.

"It was such a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant as wonderful as Arcadia hidden in a non-descript storefront just blocks from our South Loop condo. We must have passed it hundreds of times without noticing it, but we are so glad we finally discovered it. The service is attentive. The food, innovative and excellent. The portions of some of the dishes are small, which didn't bother us though it might bother people for whom quantity is the most important part of a dish."
