Ceres’ Table Restaurant Review

: Giuseppe Scurato (formerly of Topaz Café in Burr Ridge) set out on his own, opening this serene, blue-walled venture with his wife. From the moment you’re seated at the rustic, hammered wood tables, the dedication shows. A first course of arancini, oozing with a mixture of Taleggio, artichoke and saffron risotto, is both honest and luxurious; likewise the seared sheep’s milk cheese with white wine vinegar and Sicilian oregano. Shaved artichoke and mushroom salad with Parmigiano-Reggiano and arugula in truffle vinaigrette is the epitome of spring. (Seasonality and use of local bounty is a big deal here.) Pasta dishes may range from goat cheese ravioli with rock shrimp, grape tomato, fava beans, leeks and basil to spaghetti alla chitarra. Even the flat-iron steak woos from its bed of lemon-roasted potatoes and grilled romaine. Then again, there’s comfort in lasagna, blanketed with boar ragù. Desserts might include a peach crisp or zeppole. Add craft cocktails and a well-matched, approachable wine list, and the result is nothing short of bliss. Monday through Thursday, there’s a family meal, which is free for kids.
