Brindille opening soon | Photos and menu
This dreary spring is looking a little more lovely thanks to Carrie Nahabedian, the chef-owner of Naha, who's officially opening her second restaurant, Brindille (pronounced braun-DEE and French for branch or new growth), April 22. Since this is the ever-classy Nahabedian we're talking about, this will most definitely not be another of the thumping, late-night, shared-plates emporiums that have colonized River North over the past few years. Brindille (where former Naha sous chef Ali Ratcliffe-Bauer will be the chef de cuisine) is about Paris, it's about a return to refinement, it's about vintage French cocktails, and (of course) it's about foie gras (served as an appetizer with rhubarb, fennel and candied olives). Or perhaps you'd prefer to start with frog legs? Check out the full menu after the jump.
Brindille (534 N Clark St, 312-595-1616) soft-opens this weekend and is now accepting reservations for Monday, April 22 and beyond. Its hours will be open Monday–Saturday 5–10pm and Sundays 4–8pm.
