Re: “Pupy y Los Que Son Son

Gorgeous, open space. Exceptional sound. Well-stocked bar; friendly service. Very clean and classy while being utterly down to earth.

Re: “Marion Street Cheese Market Cafe

I absolutely love this place. Oak Parkers are a lucky bunch to have had this place go from its tiny cheese market beginnings four years ago to this gastro/bistro/small plates/wine-and-cheese marvel, but any Chicago foodie should be jumping on the green line and heading out here too. The FOOD is consistently FABULOUS, (simple, masterfully executed, delicious, and as organic-and-local as possible,) the SPACE is GORGEOUS, (big, bright, open, intimate, elegant, laid back,) and the STAFF is ENTHUSIASTIC, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Love it love it love it, can't wait to go back.

Finally the change in their hours: while they had been closed for dinner Sun & Mon, they are now open straight through, 21 meals a week. This is pretty phenomenal for Oak Park, (especially given the quality of the food).

Terrific, innovative, and wallet-friendly sushi. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, showing extreme patience with my endless questions and alterations to menu items. We'll be back!!

Re: “Bistro Campagne

Wonderful wonderful meal and experience. Full-on French cuisine, but so friendly!! My chevre salad was marvelous, my husband's mussels were delicious. Moved onto rainbow trout with beurre blanc -- and truly, it was one of the nicest beurre blanc sauces I've ever had -- very rich and flavourful without being overwhelmingly buttery. Dessert was chocolate souffle (really one of those molten chocolate cakes), and with each course we asked our very friendly and knowledgeable waiter for a wine pairing and he had terrific suggestions, wrapping up with a nice 20-year-old tawny port with the dessert. Also, we were easily out the door in time for our 8:00 show at the Old Town School without having felt remotely rushed. A winner.

Re: “Key Ingredient: bamboo fungus

This Key Ingredient thing has become tedious. It's like a middle school gross-out session. Its focus on finding a really crazy / gross / freaky ingredient is much less interesting than seeing what interesting spins creative people can put on a range of ingredients -- and that range has simply narrowed right down to off-the-spectrum impossible. I liked it when the challenge was using something in a novel way, and not the challenge of being the coolest kid on the block by finding the most Impossible Ingredient Ever.
