Evanston's elegant French-American seafood gem with a well-appointed wine list.
This French seafood restaurant continues to lead the Evanston pack with artistic and well-executed fare by chef-owner Mark Grosz, who worked for three years under Jean Banchet at Le Francais. A starter of grilled calamari and shrimp was exquisitely plated with an "ocean salad" of ginger, daikon, and avocado; rich butternut squash ravioli were accompanied by prosciutto and a nutty brown butter sauce with fresh sage and walnuts. Exotic fish such as the Australian barramundi give the menu an adventurous edge, while more common offerings like walleye and yellowfin tuna also make strong appearances. The wine list is wide-ranging and surprisingly moderately priced.
