The Chicago Area
Chef/owner Gabriel Viti has worked at restaurants in France and Italy, which has inspired the dinner cuisine at his own restaurant on Green Bay Road in Highwood. Wood chairs and booths with striped fabric stand ready before white tablecloths, but there’s also outdoor dining and private dining. Chef Viti’s comfort-style menu includes entrees, degustation (chef’s multi-course tasting menu), and pasta like gemelli with pesto, green beans, sun-dried tomato, and pine nuts, served from the open kitchen. Bottles of wine are available in half, full, and large-format sizes, as well as by the glass.
