Ceres' Table

3124 N. Broadway St.
Chicago, IL 60657


Chef Craig Degel grabs you by the palate and never lets go as he sends out inspired takes on regional Italian in this handsome and enlarged new location. The dishes are designed for sharing and sampling over Italian-accented cocktails and compelling Italian wines, from terrific chewy pizzas out of the wood-burning oven to platters of artisanal salumi and formaggi to crudo, antipasti, and pastas. Sweet deep-water Royal Red shrimp cured in lemon oil and served with grilled fennel and bottarga (salted pressed fish roe); saffron rice balls (arancine) filled with artichokes and Taleggio with basil aïoli and tomato sauce; and hand-rolled pici pasta with spicy sausage all warrant your attention. If one of the spot-on servers recommends a salted caramel budino with chocolate biscotti, take heed.
