1466 N. Ashland Ave., Chicago, IL 60622, United States

Opened in 2005, this small, 26-seat restaurant sits on the edge of the Wicker Park neighborhood. Redesigned in 2010, the interior now features chrome-tipped light sculptures, ebonized black wood floors, and a mylar mirrored floating ceiling. Known for his artful presentation, chef/proprietor and Chicagoland native Michael Carlson creates a rotating menu using fresh, seasonal ingredients from around the world, including rare snail roe from the shores of France and locally-grown Midwestern produce. Diners are served by the actual chefs, who offer creations like the apple pie soup and the quail egg-filled ravioli.
