For almost as long as food has been served at this great location overlooking Lincoln Park, we have been dining here. Starting with Miracles and moving onto Donna Chriszt’s, OZ, a trip to Tremont always means good food, but none was better then Sage who settling in for a long, impressive stay. Unfortunately, this loved restaurant (especially by us!) is gone. In its place is the Bistro on Lincoln Park. We might be inclined to surmise that the location draws us in, but we know better. It’s the food and while we still pine for Sage, this is damn fine cooking. We’ve dined here for lunch and dinner and every time has been superb.
This evening, Jeff enjoyed the mushroom and goat cheese tart and venison Bolognese. Perhaps the one-two punch of rich, dense food could have been too much, but he found it more then satisfying. The Bolognese was especially good with perfectly prepared fettuccini and a melt-in-your-mouth venison sauce. Michele, smart person she is, decided to go a lighter route with the Bistro salad and pan roasted walleye. Soft butter lettuce, onion vinaigrette with tomatoes and sunflower seeds, this was a good start to the perfectly prepared and VERY fresh fish served with a side of blue potatoes and bacon hash. Desert was profiteroles (cream puffs) stuffed with vanilla bean ice cream and topped with hot fudge.
Another treat is their 20 for $20 wine list. There is a list of ten white and ten red wines for twenty dollars a bottle. If you typically have a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, this is a great bargain with some nice options.
While we will always miss Sage, it is nice to know that a place as good as Bistro on Lincoln Park has taken its place.
