Hearty Boys

3819 N. Broadway; 773-244-9866, heartyboys.com
THE PITCH Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh rose to national fame by winning a reality-TV game show on the Food Network. Back at home, the duo’s catering business, Hearty Boys, specializes in elevated takes on recognizable comfort food.
COST $42.04 per person
MEAT Wagyu beef burger with curried ketchup and housemade pickle N We liked the curried ketchup, but the burger, on a huge wheat bun, took ten bites to finish and wasn’t juicy enough. 
POULTRY (pictured) Seared duck breast with apricot gastrique N A slice of duck breast under an apricot sauce, a fried oregano leaf, and a strip of candied dried fruit. Too much snazz to little effect
FISH Seared ahi tuna on won ton crisp N Fresh and pretty, but sadly lacking in flavor
SHELLFISH Lobster crab cake  N Tasting more like crab than lobster, these cakes were heavy and a little salty.
VEGETARIAN Pumpkin sage bisque shooter Y A classic soup, velvety and just the right size
WILDCARD Savory cupcakes N The concept is clever but the truffled “frosting” cloyingly rich. The thyme-lemon muffin was dry.
