$$$$American Restaurant, Fine Dining RestaurantToday ClosedMenu
The brainchild of Chef/Owner Phillip Foss, EL ideas’ mission statement is to ‘redefine fine dining.' Michelin starred EL ideas has carved a niche that separates itself by removing pretension and preconceptions from the fine dining arena. A small BYOB restaurant in a little known Chicago neighborhood, guests can enjoy a relaxed and unique setting not generally associated with restaurants serving cutting edge cuisine. Interaction with the chefs and fellow diners is not only welcome, it is encouraged. It is very common for guests to join the chefs in the kitchen during the meal to ask questions, take photos, and discuss trends.
