Greg's Reviews
 
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."
