elizabeth (2) - chicago, il
4835 n. western unit d
chicago, il 60625

i am going to keep this short as i just don't have the time to write like i used to, but i honestly cannot say enough good things about this meal and elizabeth as a whole. this was our second time at the restaurant, and the experience definitely lived up to the memories of our first meal. naming standout courses would be tough as almost every dish was excellent, but i will say that the corn soup/wheat biscuit dish was absolutely phenomenal. i urge anyone who is interested in this type of dining to go to elizabeth will not be disappointed!

  1. The composition of her food seems to have become more intricate and stylized. Beautiful.

  2. yeah for sure...the dishes are definitely more complex in terms of both ingredients used and overall composition. if you haven't been you should make it a priority...not only is the food amazing, but if you go on a weeknight the value is unbeatable.
