    Great food. Get the chicken liver pate.

    The popular choice is the bacon wrapped dates. The better choice is anything on the menu that is seasonal. It won't be there long.

    Chorizo stuffed, bacon wrapped medjool dates? Chorizo stuffed, bacon wrapped medjool dates. Do it.

    For a lighter lunch, opt for the roasted salmon tartine with a sauce made from walnuts, roasted beets, and pomegranate molasses. Read more

    Didn't have to wait for Sunday brunch. Chorizo stuffed dates & ricotta flatbread were perfect 👌🏻

    I highly recommend going at an off-peak time so you can enjoy your wine at your leisure. I guarantee the place will still be lively.

    The pork shoulder is a fantastic standby. Food has never disappointed. Great place to go when you want to spend some money and feel trendy without being obscene about it.

    Great atmosphere and food. Tasty sausage Shakshuka dish. The only neg. was the watery coffee .

    Andreas Kleiner · March 11

    The pizza with kale and burrata was the best. And definitely order the meatballs!!!

    Love the minimal design. Must have bacon-wrapped dates! Open late - great date spot.

    Ashley Sheeran · January 22
  • Grace A.

    No matter what, get the cauliflower tabbouleh if it's on the menu. I wish I had it right now.

  • Epicurious

    The long, sleek dining room wrapped up in glowing cedar looks like the world's chicest cabin. The buttery and feathery focaccia roused by Taleggio cheese, ricotta, and truffle oil—remains on the menu. Read more

    SO DELICIOUS. The dates & chicken liver mousse are my must-haves every time.

    Even more amazing than I expected. Went for brunch and had the bacon wrapped dates (of course) and the pork shoulder. Oh and the chocolate mousse.

    For something healthy: the salmon was a fine, succulent piece of fish. Also must try enjoyed the kale Bleu cheese panzanella salad!

    The dates, pork shoulder and especially those sausages on top of the paella are fantastic. The sangria is a great deal for a group-- $19 for a carafe.

    Emily Jurlina · October 24, 2014
  • Tracy T.

    Everything here is amazing. Eggs, avec coffee, bloody mary's, pancakes w/chicken wings, poached eggs, baked french toast, and the list goes on :)

    Believe the hype on the bacon wrapped, chorizo stuffed dates. The focaccia and the shawarma sausage were also standouts. I prefer the seats at the bar to the tables but that is your call.

    Weeps farm greens tuna salad and the fresh squeezed grapefruit juice!!! The salad melts in your mouth yum!!!

    So much flavour at this spot! The pasta was so tasty. Pork shoulder, incredible. And those bacon wrapped dates are a MUST eat! The menu is full of great dishes.

    You just can't find a bad dish on the menu. Great service, particularly Giulietta. This is one of the most consistently delicious places in the city.

    Fernando Covas · September 2, 2014
  • Fernando C.

    Their whole roasted fish is so well-seasoned and delicious, that most other fish will seem bland to you after this.

    Bacon wrapped dates at its best - multiple layers of flavors, sweet with a kick, perfection. Doesn't take reservation, and there's always a waiting line. Crowded seating and loud.

    Great food for lunch or dinner.

    Please get the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo. They are incredible and it's hard not to sop your bread up with that sauce. Read more

    Perhaps the best sugar snap peas I've had in my life. Also a succulent steak and amazing Pinot noir. A Chicago must!

    Amazing dinner and wine. The dates are a must and ask the waiter to pick out the best wine.

    Vinny Luongo · May 29, 2014
  • Vasanti W.

    Chorizo and dates are amazing. As is the pork shoulder. The squid and tripe was too heavy on the squid ink.

    Vasanti Wall-Persad · May 25, 2014
  • Edward E.

    Focaccia and the chorizo dates are a must!

    Edward Elchico · April 29, 2014
  • Maggie T.

    The chorizo stuffed dates were great but the focaccia was a bit heavy. Too cheesy! Not sure if I'd come back.

    Maggie Tu · April 22, 2014
  • Clifton

    Get the baby squid and tripe braised in a spicy tomato sauce with a squid ink aioli!

    Clifton · April 21, 2014

    Great brunch spot!! Get the nutter butter's!
