There is a $25, 3-course prix fixe menu in Chicago that is a fantastic value for this level of cooking, service and ambience.
The always reliably incredible, Blackbird.
Lunch: 3-course tasting menu
Two for One
A friend was coming to Chicago for some meals and I recommended Blackbird for lunch. Not only did he enjoy the one lunch, but two!
There is a phenomenal article on the history of Blackbird restaurant as well as how their powerhouse hospitality group, One Off Hospitality Group, came about.
For anyone interested in the culinary business or any business, this piece takes you through through the Blackbird restaurant timeline using photos, videos, writing and interviews. You will see architectural renderings, photos of staff who passed through the doors but most inspiring of all, how Blackbird didn’t even think they would make it right after opening.
One Off Hospitality now runs several successful Chicago food and drink establishments including Big Star, Dove’s Luncheonette, Nico Osteria, The Publican, Publican Quality Meats and Violet Hour.
