La Sardine

111 N. Carpenter St.
Chicago, IL 60607


Such deals: half-price wine on Mondays, dollar oysters at the bar on Fridays. Tuesday’s bargain is best of all, especially in this spendy part of town—any appetizer, entrée, and dessert for $30.00. Bistro standards such as brandade, tarte flambée, and poached salmon with leeks are successful, but more ambitious fare can disappoint. Braised short rib was both fatty and tough on a recent visit, and a rabbit ragoût on pappardelle was more about mushrooms than lapin. Presentations can be slapdash; a sweet exception is the delicate Grand Marnier soufflé, which arrives piping hot and camera-ready. All French wines.
