December 17, 2013 10:41 am

Impress your date with a visit to Trattoria No. 10, a classic-modern Italian restaurant complemented by romantic lighting, soft music, excellent service, and, of course, delicious food. Meals rotate frequently, so there is always something new to try, and everything is freshly made, with local ingredients. Try one of the homemade ravioli dishes, like the Ravioli with Butternut and Acorn Squash and the Heirloom Tomato Ravioli. Pasta dishes can be served as an appetizer or entree, with two different sizes available.

Meat and seafood dishes occupy the menu, as well. The Panko-Crusted Organic Chicken Breast and Farfalle Pasta with duck confit are very popular. Meals can be expensive but worth it for the outstanding cuisine. Reservations are recommended. Trattoria No. 10 is closed on Sunday. Visit the website for hours and more information.

Russian Tea Time: Come for the Tea, Stay for the Food

December 10, 2013 11:02 am

Russian Tea Time is the Loop's premier spot for Russian cuisine. Patrons find it as a perfect way to conclude an afternoon at the Art Institute. The staple Beef Stroganoff is made with lean beef pieces, cooked in sour cream, Madeira wine, mushrooms, onions dill and served over noodles. The Chicken Paprikash is also mouth-watering, chicken breast simmered in sour cream and paprika and served over polenta. Russian Tea Time also has an afternoon tea service which goes for $29.95 per guest and includes a pot of tea, scones, and a “savorie” which comes from a list of items including salmon and cream cheese. Obviously a large part of the menu is devoted to vodka, including flavors like horseradish and mint.
