Aquitaine Menu

Hours: Dinner: seven days

Price: $$$

Intimate Lincoln Park restaurant featuring the cuisine of chef Holly Willoughby (David Burke's Primehouse).

Restaurant Details

Holly Willoughby, formerly a cook at David Burke's Primehouse, applies vaguely French preparations to steak-house-size portions on a stretch of Lincoln Avenue that should otherwise be quarantined to contain the ballcap-wearing adherents of the Dave Matthews cult. In this narrow room adorned with small details of paintings commonly featured in art-history textbooks, preparations include a too-salty duck-confit crepe (or was that a burrito as big as your head?), a deep bowl of leaden gnocchi, ragged slices of duck breast over roasted squash, and a half roasted chicken clumsily swimming in an overly acidic white wine broth with mushrooms, kalamata olives, and potatoes. A lot has been made of Willoughby's commitment to buying from local farms, and I'm curious about where she found one still growing asparagus in September.
