Concierge.com's insider take:
As advertised, the latest offering from local nightlife maven Billy Dec and his savvy band of successful associates (together they have given Chicago several of its hottest clubs, including Le Passage, The Bedroom, and The Dragon Room) really is a bar and grill, albeit a Western-inspired and upscale one. Designed by local celeb interior decorator (and Oprah chum) Nate Berkus, the backdrop has comfy ambience that feels simultaneously rustic (antler chandeliers and tree-stump tables) and modern (flat-screen TVs). You may spot David Schwimmer or Jeremy Piven shooting stick upstairs, but more likely you'll find a well-heeled crowd downstairs noshing on French-inspired cuisine like lamb hot pot with radicchio or chicken paillard. A modified late-night menu is served until 1:30 a.m., but it can get too loud and crowded to think about eating after 11, especially on weekends.
Open Sundays through Fridays 11:30 am to 1:30 am, Saturdays 11:30 am to 2:30 am.
