The final course of the October tasting menu was a great way to be sent off. This pumpkin creme brulee was very creamy and thick. It did have a bit of caramelization on top that you could crack through with your spoon. The pumpkin isn't too strong, so it was nice to just have a hint of that instead of being overwhelmed. The vanilla ice cream was paired well and had a really beautiful vanilla flavor. The figs added a nice touch as well. It was also topped with cilantro, which I'm still unsure how I feel about. I think I could do without, but I appreciate the attempt to bring something a little extra. I also just want to mention, look at this huge portion! I wouldn't have been mad if this was for two to share, but we were each given a nice sized bowl!

I would highly recommend this tasting menu if you're looking for a nice night out in Chicago. The whole thing is $55 per person, or you can go for the "Date Night Tasting Package" for $132, which includes a bottle of wine that is paired specifically to the entree. The staff was also amazing and we really enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere.
