Elizabeth Restaurant

Chicago, IL 60625

Critic’s Notes

Iliana Regan’s dream-like feasts, served in a dining room festooned with owl totems and light fixtures crafted out of tree branches, use foraged greens, game meats, and obscure ingredients to create a unique fine-dining adventure. 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. Regan’s offerings capture the richness of nature’s bounty with grace. Multicourse tasting menu prices start at $85. Buy tickets at elizabeth-restaurant.com.
