What a great meal! We did the tasting menu with wine pairing and I highly recommend it. The food was absolutely delicious. The fish was all cooked to perfection and beyond fresh. The lamb was probably the most tender lamb I've ever eaten. all the flavors worked beautifully and I wish I had the recipe for the carrot mole because I want to put it on everything. The tea of smoked fruit and vegetables was also a highlight and I may try and reverse engineer it because it was like nothing else I've ever tasted and I want more. I love it when a tasting menu leaves me full enough to be more than satisfied by the end but not overstuffed and falling into a food coma. Very glad I decided to come here for my birthday dinner and I hope to be able to dine here again sooner rather than later!
Unique & Delicious! Everything about Elske was impressive. I walked in having pregnancy dietary restrictions, and figured I wouldn’t be able to do the tasting menu (and would opt for a la carte) as many items had raw, partially cooked or organ meat. I was pleasantly surprised when they were able to offer substitutions that fit my needs! Everything was superb, the dessert was stand out to me. And the NA cocktails were some of the best I have ever had. I hope to go back and dine by their outdoor fireplace when the weather is nicer!
Home away from home. Elske is the most comforting experience and reminds me of my years living in Denmark. Elske is in my book the #1 restaurant in Chicago. The food quality, environment, and staff just are the absolute best. I felt taken care of and comforted by our waitress without her presence being too on top of the table. The food and wine explanations were fantastic. The meat options at elske are always immaculate. However this round the beets won the award for Best plate. There is nothing more Scandinavian then great root veg and Elske out performs even some of those restaurants I went to in Copenhagen. Gosh darn I love Elske.
Elske is a contemporary and cozy dining experience perfect for a date night or a casual dinner experience. For anyone doing to the tasting menu, the juice pairing is a treat. Each juice is as curated and thoughtful as the dish itself. Our party loved the flow of dishes and were pleasantly full by the end of the meal.
Love Elske so happy take part in their re-opening menu. Definitely worth their michelin star, from the fennel accents to the impeccable service. It was lovely being back and being able to try new innovative food. The leeks and the risotto were probably my favorites but everything had a purpose and the taste was phenomenal. Thanks Laura our lovely server, love you lots for making our night special. The team did a lovely job, A+ for service.
