Chef’s Tasting Prix Fixe at LOKaL

Five Course Menu, Paired Beverages

Every Monday


LOKaL, the modern, pan-European neighborhood café located in Wicker Park, is offering a delicious dinner option every Monday evening. A five course, chef’s tasting menu will be paired with three beverages (wine or beer) for $40 per guest. Unlike other prix fixe offerings around town, Chef Ian Flowers’ menus will be different every single week. Many of the ingredients utilized will be from local markets and farms (Green City Market, Green Acres, Leaning Shed Farm, Nichols Farm, Orchard), so seasonality and availability will determine the cuisine. Three sample menus are listed below.

Reservations (by phone or through the website) are recommended, but not required. Tax and gratuity is not included.
