Restaurant Michael

64 Green Bay
Winnetka, IL


Michael Lachowicz, one of the last champions of a classically French fine-dining experience, has no need for small plates or a casual urban vibe. His restaurant, complete with cream tablecloths and copper saucepots, is built for leisurely dining, especially with a bottle of wine from the expert list. Try the sweetbreads with truffled pommes purée, a Dijon-style short rib, or the saffron-fennel yellowtail snapper with an elegant cauliflower purée. The meticulous waitstaff exempliflies the pleasures and formalities of haute French dining.
