The Florentine

As the weather grows colder—and quickly!—rich, hearty flavors beckon us inside from the chill. The bright colors of autumn's harvest—think roasted delicata squash, pink-red pomegranates, pumpkin seeds, swiss chard and more—warm and delight us. This time of year, many of Chicago’s top restaurants transition to new fall menus, which means you'll reap the bounty of eating seasonally, plus you may get the opportunity to find new favorite dishes at old favorite spots!

Indeed, it would require some planning, but never mind. You’re right in front of chic Chicago restaurant Fig & Olive, so walk in, take the elevator to the second floor and find your own retreat amidst their new spring time offerings.
