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 />

"As always the service was impeccable. I brought a friend who had never been and they thoroughly enjoyed the french toast. As always I ordered the Oeuf Bénédictine Au Saumon which unfortunately lacked flavor, as there were more tomatos than salmon. Potatoes were nice and crisp."

Located in Chicago’s exciting theatre district, in the city’s “Loop” area, Petterino’s offers prime steaks, fresh seafood and classic specialties. Featuring a 1940’s style look, with original drawings of actors who have performed in Chicago, Petterino’s celebrates the Golden Age of Glamour and the Theatre while offering delicious cuisine with a full menu of favorites from tomato bisque soup to a shrimp de jonghe to fettuccine alberto.<br /><br />Pre-theatre and after work specials are available daily. Petterino's location is ideal for business lunches as well as a break from shopping or touring in the nearby State Street and Millennium Park venues. Pre-theatre diners have the option of leaving their car with Petterino's while they attend the show and can then pick it up after the performance is completed.

"I have been to Petterino's many times. The dinner menu is excellent and we all enjoyed selections from the Prix Fixe menu that includes more than the food a restaurant wants to get rid of. I ordered the horseradish whitefish that was flavorful and not overwhelming. The othes in my party also ate every bite of their Chicken Schnitzel and salmon. The tiramisu needed more coffee and was slightly bland. We had to ask the waiter for bread which is a big faux pas for me, so the gratuity was only 15%."

"Two friends were visiting from London and I wanted them to taste Southern cooking, without me doing the work. They thoroughly enjoyed the fried chicken cooked in leaf lard and said it was the best chicken they had ever eaten. Each also raved about the falafel and gumbo yaya. GREAT JOB BIG JONES. Now on to my meal. The duck tamales were overcooked so the masa was hard and I had to use a knife to cut through it. My catfish on the other hand was not cooked enough so the light breading (much appreciated than heavy breading) was not tan, but still beige so was a little gummy. All three of us agreed that the collard greens had so much vinegar that you couldn't taste the vegetable, only vinegar bitterness."
