If you are in Chicago, then you should check out the great atmosphere and buzz; delicious food at Blackbird Chicago Restaurant. This favorite Chicago restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy some truly unique cuisine in a sleek setting; both interesting and sophisticated.
As a “lonely” diner and being a woman normally I end up being offered the most hidden table – but not here. Had a truly great evening … with fantastic buzz (quite loud), it was packed to the rim and outstanding food. Service where fun, friendly, pleasant and relaxed. They made me feel like I was the most important guest that evening, great feeling.
After 11 years is it a bit difficult to remember description of the dishes, but I indulged myself with their tasting menu; as a started I had parmesan risotto followed with poached salmon as main course and a divine dessert with the perfect chewy meringues together with fresh berries. It didn’t come cheap, but I can’t remember that I was sweating while paying.
It’s now 11 years gone since my visit – have kept an eye on the place and it’s still one of Chicago’s 10 best rated restaurants. Why didn’t I go back in July-12 ??? I had heard so much good about their new restaurant “The Publican” – so I gave it a try, had a fantastic evening there; sharing dishes, beligum beers and more beers, but a total differenct concept and eating expericance.
But I think I will revisit Blackbird in September this year.
