Chez Joel, Chicago, IL

Chez Joel Restaurant Review:

Though it seems unlikely escargots found a way to Chicago's Little Italy, they most certainly did --- and to good success at Joël Kazouini’s charming bistro. We recommend the pâté and the plump moules marinières, steeped in herbaceous wine sauce. Steak frites are a classic go-to, topped with maître d’hôtel butter with crispy frites. So is the by-the-books coq au vin and grilled steak au poivre. Dessert choices are simple, as in a tangy lemon or clafoutis-style blueberry tart. Service is on the money in every respect. The garden is built for romance.
