Chez Joël Bistro

1119 W. Taylor St.
Chicago, IL 60607

Critic’s Notes

This quirkily located outpost delivers solid bistro classics: French onion soup, pâtés, and frog’s legs with brown butter sauce. The rare duck breast and duck leg confit with wild mushroom fricassee ranks in sheer meatiness with the traditionally sauced steaks, while the aroma of fine Marseillaise bouillabaisse permeates the well-run dining room. Seek out the quaint patio on summer evenings.
