Our Review

A composed plate featuring two rows of four perfectly aligned nachos shows up on the menu of Gemini, the second act for a long-running Lincoln Park neighborhood restaurant. Each of those well-behaved chips is piled with successively diminishing gobs of garnish, beginning with juicy duck confit, followed by a tiny, perfect square of melted chihuahua cheese, then a wee spread of avocado pico de gallo, a dribble of lime-infused crema, and a thin sliver of bright red chile. It's a composition so uptight and precious I thought I'd entered a time warp back to 2009. That was the year Jason Paskewitz opened the kitchen at Gemini Bistro. On his menu was "a basket of greasy tortilla chips dusted with dry, gamy, stringy duck and sprinkled sparsely with mango salsa and queso fresco," wrote Martha Bayne, eating for the Reader.
