Braised Ribs at Leopold in Chicago

Here’s the Restaurant Week 2012 Menu:

First Course: Mixed Green or Beet Salad

Second Course: Moules and Frites or Braised Short Rib

Dessert: Belgian Waffle or Orand and Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta

I love the Braised Short Rib with winter stoemp, arugula and pickled onion with the Domaine dupage demi glaze. It pairs nicely with the 2010 Chateau D’Agel; a nice blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre.

Order a side of Roasted Brussel Sprouts with turnips, chestnuts, bacon and maple syrup served in a small cast iron pot.

Try the Moules in white wine and garlic with a side of delicious Frites.

Leopold brings back fond memories of the mussels that I had in Brussels at an outdoor cafe in the elegant Grand Place. This delightful European-influenced restaurant in West Town transports you to Belgium.

Every Sunday, Leopold’s offers “Mussels from Brussels”; a three course menu with beer or wine pairings for $30.

My compliments to Chef Jeffrey Hedin!!!!
