Elate restaurant in River North has recently appointed Mike Noll as the Executive Chef. Noll will offer contemporary American, rustic cuisine that incorporates locally-sourced ingredients on each of his breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and late night menus. All of Elate’s menus are ever-changing due to seasonal readiness and market availability.

Elate and Chef Noll are pleased to release the new dinner menu. The offerings include selections of flatbreads, charcuterie, raw, small plates and entrees, ranging from $10-$27. The complete menu is below.

Noll, now Executive Chef, initially joined Elate as the Chef de Cuisine (under consulting Executive Chef Chris Curren). His previous positions include such celebrated restaurants as Moto, Butter, Powerhouse, Schwa and Jam. He credits Chef Michael Carlson’s and Chef Jeff Mauro’s passion and love for their craft as a major influence on his career. Mike Noll originally hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his interest in cooking began under the tutelage of Michael Barbado at Peppercorns and Toni Pais at Baum Vivant.
