Smyth

Where Chicago - - WHERE NOW -

This bi-level restau­rant sports two dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties. Down­stairs is The Loy­al­ist, a re­laxed spot where walk-ins are wel­come and the menu is a la carte. Up­stairs is the homey (but more re­fined) Smyth, where the open kitchen is run by hus­band and wife team John Shields and Karen Urie Shields, who cut their teeth at the famed Char­lie Trot­ter’s. The tast­ing menu is a col­lec­tion of seasonal, cre­ative—but not ex­per­i­men­tal— dishes like brioche donuts with aged beef au jus. 177 N. Ada St., 773.913.3773, smythandth­eloy­al­ist.com
