THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ambria Restaurant Review

: AMBRIA HAS CLOSED. This classic and stylish restaurant is among Chicago's best. Chef-owner Gabino Sotelino is a culinary whiz who knows how to work magic in the kitchen, as does his chef de cuisine, Christian Eckmann. The elegant Art Nouveau dining room, with its dark woods and soft edges, evokes memories of great rooms past, but the cooking is planted with both feet in the present. The menu changes seasonally, but you can count on a lush and sensuous foie gras or a napoleon of sea scallops for openers. Salads are no less exquisite, and if a restaurant's worth is measured by the goodness of its soups, then Ambria is estimable. Seafood and game are given equal billing on the menu, and we have never met a preparation of these that we didn't relish. D├ęgustation menus abound (including vegetarian and shellfish), so there is ample opportunity to taste and taste some more. Desserts are a treasure trove of delights. Ambria's resident wine expert knows how to pair food with wine. Trust him. In fact, the service, overall, is as professional as you will find. Definitely a special restaurant for that special celebration.
