This bistro dishes up loads of charm with a healthy dash of humor in the heart of Boystown. Flickering tealights on the closely packed bistro-style tables faintly illuminate cozy orange walls painted with food-related quotes. Chef Victor Morenz’s eclectic menu picks up influences from around the globe, but each dish is consistently gratifying. Southern meets south-of-the-border in crisp fried oyster tacos with pickled pepper remoulade. Candied kumquats and olive tapenade contrast pleasantly against buttery seared duck breast, and a cube of warm fudgy chocolate cake placed over a swipe of coconut-peanut butter is a decadent finale. Plan for an early evening if you're looking forward to a quiet meal; at peak hours, those orange walls really reverberate.
