Owner Jon Young of Kitsch’n on Roscoe and Kitsch’n River North has teamed up with chef Stephen Dunne (formerly mk’s chef de cuisine) at this small-plates wine bar. Dunne’s best dishes are the rich ones: Plates like his intense duck confit leg with sweet garlic puree, seared diver scallops topped with caviar and crispy leeks, and roasted veal marrow bones with toast. Luckily the eclectic wine list is well thought-out and stocked with plenty of food-friendly quaffs to cut through it all.
