Panoramic views and eye-popping spaces are par for the course at most of the lofty spots abutting the Chicago River, but The Kitchen’s farm-to-table food manages to steer the focus back to the plate. The restaurant’s approachable, community-minded take on straightforward seasonal food—along with its impressive drinks program—makes it easy to please. Even if you’re not attending a Monday “Community Night” dinner alongside many of the purveyors whose ingredients appear on the plate, you’ll find a fresh, flavorful mix of dishes. Crushed white bean bruschetta is topped with a sprightly herb and frisée salad, which is in turn dressed with a blood orange vinaigrette. And wild Bristol Bay salmon is poached with care, its silkiness punctuated by garlic-chive aïoli.
