Market House on the Square is a concept built on a few simple concepts. Chef Tsonton uses fresh, local ingredients to create a unique take on familiar food that we grew up with and a fresh look at dishes we have come to crave as adults. Chef infuses a lighter touch to classics such as Meatloaf, Crab Cakes and Pot Roast, while bringing a healthier and fresher approach to very popular dishes like Risotto, Salmon and the very unique “Burger, No Bun."<br /> <br />This emphasis on local, fresh, familiar products also extends to the bar where great Local Craft Beer favorites include Half Acre, Tighthead Blonde Ale from Mundelein and Inspiration Pale Ale from up the street in Lake Bluff. These are the centerpiece to a beverage menu that includes classic cocktails with North Shore Vodka and Gin and a robust wine list featuring 20 selections by the quartino.

"A very enjoyable experience. Food was very good and the service conscientious and responsive. I enjoyed pepper steak and my companions had fish. Salad was very fresh and contained interesting variety. Desert offering was creative."

Hai Yen Restaurant welcomes you to experience the essence of Vietnam in Chicago. From our famous Bo La Lot (marinated ground beef wrapped in a Hawaiian leaf then grilled), to the very traditional beef noodle soup (Pho), or exotic salads such as the Lotus Root Salad, to our fresh fruit smoothies with tapioca, we have everything to please any one's palate. <br><br> Vietnamese food consists of regional flavors with an infusion of French and Chinese cuisine. Our cuisine is incredibly healthy and is known as the cuisine of the dipping sauces. We use a lot of fresh vegetables and herbs, mainly for wrapping with different types of meat in a very thin, delicate rice paper with a dipping sauce on the side. At our restaurant, we allow you to join in on the fun of cooking Vietnamese food by letting you cook the food right at your own table with a fondue pot, soup pot or a grill. So stop by and create your own experience of Vietnam with us!

"We had a good Vietnamese meal at this storefront before Steep Theater. It was about two blocks south. The food was very well prepared and the menu was diverse. It was empty when we arrived but about half full when we left. We enjoyed the steamed sea bass, shrimp in lobster sauce and the appetizers. The crepes were outstanding."
