Acadia Restaurant Review

: Ryan McCaskey’s classic, contemporary American spot in the South Loop flies in the face of current convention --- it's elegantly upscale, with unapologetically refined food in a minimalist dining room meant to showcase the artful plate presentations. Diners can choose between an eight-course tasting menu, with or without wine pairings, or order à la carte. Taking inspiration from Maine, the menu trots out seafood-driven plates like halibut with leeks, clams, bacon and chowder. Land-based dishes have included Duroc pork belly with grains, smoked banana purée and uni, and Indiana duck with quinoa, curry, salt-baked carrots and beets. Cocktails continue the ingredient-forward theme; the wine list is smart and fairly spendy. Finish with a cheese plate or chocolate with kuri squash, figs, huckleberry and cashew.
