I spend my days working in the marketing field and throw jewelry trunk shows on the side, but my true passion is good food and good wine. My love of food and quest for new and interesting meals will never be satiated.
Restaurant: Rustic House
Walking through the welcoming front door is truly like walking into a friend's house with such a cozy vibe. The bar is just big enough and they have a nice selection of cocktails and wines. Although, not so impressed by their Reds by the glass. The menu was great, offering very small snacks to salads to apps to larger plates and sides. Love the idea of the daily rotisserie specials (by the way, the place does not leave you smelling of a wood burning oven). We had the suckling pig, which is a stack of meat to feed two...halibut...potatoes gratin...brussel sprouts...all washed down with a bottle of Red recommended by our waitress, who was fantastic and cute as a button. Loved it all. I almost feel like sharing this could make it difficult to get a reservation...but, how can I not share the love. Truly a neighborhood gem.

The menu is great, the food is fresh and the ambiance is inviting. The service is superb, from the girls at the front to the bar to the waiters. Make a point this summer to have dinner with friends on the patio...it is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city...even with Halsted just steps away. You will be delighted. See you there!
