La Petite Folie

1504 E. 55th St.
Chicago, IL 60615

Critic’s Notes

As the neighborhood changes around this reliable strip mall bistro, the old carpet and yellow walls feel like artifacts from another era—a simpler and warmer one, wherein the Alsatian onion tart was heartier, the duck pâté thicker, and the Bordeaux less expensive. The quiet room often fills with University of Chicago big shots, and the servers are endlessly professional. Early-bird $38 prix fixe menu.
