Still the star of the Near Southside, chef Molly McCook delights with plates that are as good to eat as they are artfully presented. Her sweet potato pierogis bear burnished, tender crusts, crowned with a nest of purple sauerkraut given a hint of crunch with toasted local pecans, foiled by a smooth Gorgonzola cream. Swiss chard–wrapped dolmas enfold a lush filling of ground water buffalo and basmati rice with crumbled feta, microgreens, bread crumbs, and black olives atop. Grilled duck breast, supple and richly pink inside, takes on a lovely accompaniment of sage-braised tiny onions and a muscadine-mustard puree. Black cod in lesser hands is usually dull, but here, its satiny texture enjoys flavor infusions from rosemary, capers, and garlic, all settling atop cannellini beans and sautéed mushrooms.
