The owners of Le Sud, the surprise hit that endeared itself to Roscoe Village after opening last September, are opening a downtown restaurant with a patio space that should cater to the post-work crowd. Club 77 will debut this summer inside the former Early Society space at 77 W. Wacker Drive.
Look for dishes inspired by the diverse Chicago Neighborhoods, an American focused wine list, handcrafted seasonal cocktails and an expansive whiskey selection.
“The Cappelletti stuffed with sauerkraut and Gruyere and a charred onion broth is how I remember the first time trying French onion soup at the restaurant where my grandma was a waitress, the Flame of Countryside — lightening it up a bit with a vegetarian caramelized onion broth and adding a lot of fresh herbs and greens.
“We envisioned an ode to Italian beef — re imagined as a roasted piece of Wagyu, peppers coming into season that have been roasted with lots of aromatics and then finishing with a light giardiniera of vegetables and a red wine jus to provide that ‘hey, let’s have a beautiful glass of red” to tie it together.”
