Elizabeth Restaurant

Chicago, IL 60625


Iliana Regan’s dream-like feasts, served in a dining room festooned with owl totems and light fixtures crafted out of tree branches, use a dynamic combination of foraged greens, game meats, and obscure ingredients to create a fine-dining experience like no other in the city. Everything feels deeply personal—rich, raw, and untamed—but ultimately elegant and soulful. Think mushroom teas brewed with cocoa and chamomile, wild pheasant pâté topped with truffles, and a flight of charred leafy vegetables dressed with a ragoût of beef hearts. Mushrooms come fried in acorn flour, and noodles made out of pulverized shrimp. Regan’s offerings defy classification but capture the richness of nature’s bounty with grace and refinement. Multicourse menu prices start at $85.
