Hey guys, here’s a quick post about an awesome restaurant I found: Cité Chicago. Thanks to Groupon (and my 2 year anniversary), I was able to enjoy the French cuisine on the very top floor of the Lake Point Tower (the weirdly-shaped black building by the Lake Shore? Yeah!).
We enjoyed their Escargot Francois which, if you’ve never had Escargot before, was an awesome appetizer. The rich flavor of the sauce it’s cooked in really warms up your palate for the rest of the dinner.
For our main dishes, we got their Fruit de Mer Risotto and Duck a l’Orange. The seafood risotto tasted like it came straight out of the ocean - the risotto was creamy, and that giant scallop, crab, and blue crab were the perfect complement. The duck was something I really wanted - it’s a classic duck dish I have always wanted to try, and I’m glad I did! The orange reduction was really good with the tender duck breast.
Sometimes, we like to get classy with our dinners. And Cité definitely gave us a meal we won’t forget!
