Why you should go. Parmentier is French comfort food, the equivalent of our mac and cheese but with added versatility. This purée (usually potatoes) over a tasty layer of ground meat, fish, vegetables or left-over stew offers many possible variations. Practice making a smooth purée and tasty fillings. One of our pairing could become your weekday dinner favorite!

Useful tips:

  • Alone or with friends? Either or.
  • Attire? Casual.
  • Business cards are always a plus.

  1. Bistronomic on Wabash between Pearson and Chestnut – French eclectic grub
  2. Café des Architectes at the Sofitel between State and Wabash – classy French wine bar and food available
  3. Café Iberico on LaSalle between Chicago and Superior – Spanish tapas.
  4. Lyfe Kitchen on State between Pearson and Chestnut millennial-style dining, but some pretty good grub and wine or beer.
