Chez Moi is a unique French bistro located in the heart of Lincoln Park at 2100 North Halsted.<br /><br />Chef and Owner Dominique Tougne, the former Executive Chef of Bistro 110 in Downtown Chicago, brought all the best cuisine from France along with the finest selection of French wine, reminding you of a true Parisian Bistro. <br /><br /> 'Chez moi" means my place/home. <br />So don't hesitate, open the door, have a seat and enjoy fabulous food just like if you were home.<br /><br />A Private Dining Room is available, "The Chef's Room", for your private event can accommodate up to 35 people.<br />Next time you are at Chez Moi stop in the Chef's Room and take a look at all of the jackets signed and left by prestigious French Chefs for Dominique. <br /><br />Chez Moi's famous dishes include traditional cuisine from all around France like The French Onion Soup, The Tarte aux Lardons, The Cassoulet Toulousain and the delicious Gâteau Breton. <br /><br />

Riccardo started his career at a very young age in Milan's prestigious "GIRARROSTO" family owned. Then, in 1982 he moved to the United States and he opened the famous Sonny Bono's in Los Angeles. In 1987 he started to work with his cousin Roberto Ruggeri (owner of Bice's Venture), with him he opened Bice New York, Los Angeles and many others around the world. <br /><br />Now, after three years as Executive Chef of Bice in Chicago, and together with his wife (and sous chef), Veronica, and his cousin (and hostess), Barbara, he decided to continue his gastronomic artistry and creativity in his restaurant named after himself "Riccardo Trattoria."<br /><br /><br />Here through the craftsmanship of an Italian food connoisseur, dishes are prepared with an almost zen-like essentiality that has shaped Riccardo's professional and existential life course.

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's also features signature prime steaks, hand-carved by master butchers such as our 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.
