Blackbird: Imaginative Midwestern Cuisine

I went to Blackbird in 2016 for New Years Eve which is home base for James Beard winning chef Paul Kahan. We had a 5 course meal that was a spectacular twist on a fancy farm house American meal.  The ingredients were typical for a menu you would see in Chicago but the way they are served is so much more.  They showcase farm-fresh ingredients to create a menu both classic and utterly approachable.

The fixed meal on a normal day is going to cost you $130 with a $70 wine pairing which is quite expensive for Chicago.  The meal was fantastic however may not be worth the price.  Go for the lunch Prix Fix menu when you can for $25 per person or try to go during restaurant week.

Favorite Menu Staple: salad of endive. crispy potato. basil. dijon. pancetta. poached egg
