THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Wave, Chicago, IL

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Wave Restaurant Review

: Wave, in the ultra-hip W Chicago-Lakeshore, has a splashy sunken dining room that attracts a cool crowd. The space is a study in drama, from the glass-covered gray and blue-green walls to the fabric that undulates over a central communal table. Pulsating music, psychedelic projections and a throbbing lobby bar add to the club-like setting at night, when the chic gather to sip fancy cocktails and vino while savoring French and Italian-leaning small plates from Greg Elliott (ex-Lockwood). Options, though they often change, may include prosciutto-wrapped monkfish with kale, potatoes and clams or house-made bucatini with rock shrimp, baby squash and chile flakes. For dessert, try the passion fruit panna cotta.
