D.O.C., Chicago, IL

D.O.C. Restaurant Review

: Sleek and casually cool, this approachable vino bar --- its name stands for the Italian wine designation Denominazione di Origine Controllata --- brings wine down to earth with interesting flights, generally affordable bottles and a menu of grape-friendly small plates, from chorizo-stuffed dates to jumbo lump crab cakes. While savoring your Pinot Noir, go for bites we can’t get enough of: frites with a trio of sauces, white-sauced pizza and a turkey burger with soy and ginger accents. Cheese and charcuterie plates are also notable; so is the skillet-baked cookie. Also located at 326 Yorktown Center, The Shops on Butterfield, Lombard, 630-627-6666.
