Joining it's Michelin Bib-Gourmand winning sister restaurant Gemini Bistro in Lincoln Park, Rustic House features classic American cuisine utilizing fresh, farm-to-table ingredients. Chef Jason Paskewitz and restaurateur Ryan O'Donnell provide urbanites with fresh Midwestern dishes - many coming off an imported Rotisol French rotisserie - in a warm, intimate environment. Seasonal ingredients are served along with Gepperth's Meat Market meats and other carefully selected components to create exciting, updated dishes. The warm décor features natural raw materials including weathered barnyard walls, burlap wall treatments, Travertine tiled floors and artwork by local artists.
Seating is available for 50 people in the welcoming front dining room, eight at the intimate bar and 28 in the cozy back dining room which features a fireplace framed by a reclaimed oak mantle. A private dining space in the lower level wine cellar accommodates up to 20 people.
