Wine Bar | West Loop, Chicago

Food was delicious. Server was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend going elsewhere for dessert after dinner. We ordered the deconstructed chocolate cake to share between three people and we each got one bite. It literally looked like someone just sprinkled some cake crumbs on a plate and then served it.
