Start with a glass of Qupe Syrah while you are contemplating the Restaurant Week Menu.
My incredible Chicago Restaurant Week dinner at Naha included:
*a Salad of Wood-Grilled Chicken with Italian Farro and Sylvetta Arugugula. It was farnished with Candied “Budda Hand” Lemon and Cracked Walnuts
*The main course was an incredible Lacquered Hudson Valley Moulard Duck Breast and Foie Gras with a “Tarte Tatin” of Bartlett Pear and Fennel, Licorice and Port
*I loved the “Croustade” of Bananas, Cashews and Caramel that I had for dessert.
