833 W. Randolph St.
- Western Mediterranean
- Chef: Jared Van Camp
Slipping in under the wire (the opening was just in the nick of presstime), Van Camp's follow-up to Old Town Social is still pretty raw, but it's rife with promise. Nestled among Randolph Street's heavy hitters, Nellcôte has an ambiance that fits the bill; the Euro-chic space, a namesake nod to a French mansion once inhabited by the Rolling Stones, drips with luxe details. Chef-shaken "kitchen cocktails"and well-curated Belgian beers also keep pace with—if not outshine—the neighbors. Ditto the pillowy wood-fired pizzas, crafted with house-milled wheat flour, and the myriad small plates. Pastas and desserts left us wanting better–and expecting we'll get that satisfaction.
