The Florentine

JW Marriott Hotel, 151 W. Adams St.
Chicago, IL 60603

Critic’s Notes

This graceful space showcases the Italian flavors of Zachery Walrath. A plate of baby peppers stuffed with homemade fennel sausage in tomato sauce with mint and goat cheese brings smiles, as does pork shank melting in a braise of onions and oranges. Fine Italian wines and pistachio cheesecake round out the meal.
