Food + Wine

Big Chefs, Small Hotels

by Michael Y. Park

Longman & Eagle, Chicago

Fresh off a one-star nod from Michelin's critics in 2010, the owners of Longman & Eagle, a bare-bones Chicago temple to snout-to-tail pork, decided to try their hand at the hotel business, too. Jared Wentworth, the priest of pig here, offers diners a constantly changing menu of meat that might include pork shank with collard greens and grits, wild boar Sloppy Joes, or pumpkin risotto with pork belly confit. Stay late enough, and you'll be sharing elbow space with other restaurateurs and chefs downing whiskey ($3 a shot, no matter the label) and gobbling a protein-packed early breakfast such as egg hash with duck confit. Stay even later, and you can go upstairs to one of six simple guest rooms (exposed brick, bold pieces from local artists, wood platform beds and desks) to sleep off your food coma.
