Acanto Restaurant Review

: At this sister restaurant of Billy Lawless’ The Gage next door, chef Christopher Gawronski serves contemporary Italian dishes, including a selection of homemade pastas like black peppercorn rigatoni with spiced lamb ragoût and duck egg spaghetti “carbonara” with creamy pork sugo. Creamy risotto with mascarpone gets studded with seasonal ingredients throughout the year. The red-washed dining room with leather booths, wine displays, chalkboard menus and soft lighting has a warm and inviting feel, while an intimate outdoor patio decorated with string-lighting offers good people-watching opportunities and views of Millennium Park across the street.
