With rustic exposed brick walls, re-purposed farm wood and communal tables, Davanti Enoteca takes its cues from the small villages of Italy. Diners enjoy authentic Italian dishes they would find in the Italian countryside, but with a contemporary, creative twist.The start diners may choose from the selection of formaggi and salumi which is designed for guests to create their own boards by choosing from unique options. Instant classics include the boards that are presented to the table. The Foccacia de Recco is a flaky Ligurian style foccacia, baked and stuffed with creamy melted crescenza cheese and served with honeycomb to spread on the warm pastry. Buttery marscapone polenta is ladled on a wooden board and served with ragu of the day.

"Everything was perfect and delicious! We shared sparking wine, the truffled egg toast w/ fontina and asparagus, calamari, meatballs and prosciutto e Rucola pizza. Everything was amazing, can't wait to go back!"

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.

A member of the Francesca's Restaurant Group; Davanti Enoteca is a wine bar that offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine. <br /><br />After opening the first location in 2010 in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood, Davanti Enoteca has expanded with restaurants in Del Mar, San Diego; Little Italy, San Diego; Western Springs, Illinois; and now the newest addition the Courtyard Marriot River North in Chicago. Davanti Enoteca, an Italian wine bar, offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine from pastas, pizzas, and entrees in addition to small plate items such as vasi (mini mason jars with Tuscan toast), antipasti, salads and tableside presentations. Exposed brick and refurbished wood create the ambiance of a countryside cottage in Italy.
