The Winchester - Chicago
You want a nice place, but not too fancy; you want good food, but nothing fussy; what you want is The Winchester, an extremely comfortable neighborhood restaurant serving thoughtful, creative dishes that leverage the local and the organic. The Winchester menu is a catalog of comfortable chow, like buttermilk fried chicken and Brussels sprouts salad, but also more innovative items, like tomato jam with goat cheese and seared Roman gnocchi. Beer, spirits and a surprisingly large (given the size of the place) wine list focuses on American products (the wine list itself is 100% American). Service is friendly and informative, ensuring you’ll have a very relaxed, delicious time.
