Chicago: Blackbird

A sleek, minimalist counterpoint to Chicago’s testosterone-heavy steakhouses, this eatery from restaurateur Paul Kahan (he also owns the popular Avec and The Publican), attracts chic diners lured by dishes like warm sepia noodles, wood-grilled sturgeon and, lest you still have a red meat hankering, a short rib burger and fries. The room is modern, the menu stylishly tasty, and the service friendly, yet unobtrusive. The best part? Prices aren’t over-the-top, especially if you opt for the three-course prix fixe menu.
COST: $22 for three-course prix fixe menu (plus tax and tip).
