THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Storefront Company Restaurant Review

: Nestled into the historic Flat Iron Building, this rustic Wicker Park spot from the Debonair Social Club crew is the kind of place that epitomizes Chicago dining: chef-driven (in this case the toque is Bryan Moscatello), sophisticated and unfussy, with an eye toward local ingredients. There’s also a kitchen counter, and it yields a four-course meal with up-front views of the kitchen and bar. From start to finish, the composed plates are infused with familiar flavors. Yet here, seared scallops arrive with an accompanying nub of melty lamb belly and pickled peach, while vibrantly pink venison loin mingles with huckleberries, rye dumplings and pumpernickel. While we didn’t necessarily dig the desserts, sweet sponge candy with cassis being a case in point, they continue the hip, if off-kilter, theme. Expertly crafted cocktails and a thoughtful wine list complete the experience.
