Perennial Virant

1800 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago, IL 60614

Critic’s Notes

Paul Virant’s preservationist style bursts from every corner of the room. Pickles, jams, or preserves appear in most dishes, lending palpable freshness and tartness. Radical seasonality and artisanal touches such as charcuterie and forcemeats further define the restaurant’s au courant character and Virant’s unmistakable stamp. The name describes the place perfectly.
