From My Menu

Chef Dirk Flanigan reviews Whole roasted "dressed" squab at Naha
$$$$ |
Near North Side
1 Review
"It's always cooked properly, talons and all, with a unique North African-inspired 'tagine' of French shell beans, Kadota fig and rutabaga purée, licorice, pistachios, and pink peppercorns."
Chef Mark Mendez reviews Famous Naha half-pound burger at Naha
$$$$ |
Near North Side
1 Review
"Carrie does so many things well, but this burger is one of my favorites. She crusts the bun with house-made sea salt. When given the option to add pork belly or slab bacon, do it."
Chef Ryan Poli reviews Naha chicken wings at Naha
$$$$ |
Near North Side
1 Review
"The crispy, spicy wings are addictive, but it’s the house-made ranch that keeps me wanting more. The last time I was there, I ordered them to-go after I finished my meal."
Chef Gilbert Langlois reviews Dessert at Naha

Near North Side
1 Review
"Forgive me Carrie, but this one goes out to pastry chef Craig Hazewski. Everything that he creates is heavenly, making you feel like you deserve a nap on a hammock. Try the Gâteau Basque, mille-feuille, or Breton butter sablé."
Chef Heather Terhune reviews Pan-roasted skate wing at Naha
$$$$ |
Near North Side
1 Review
"This crispy catch is paired with Blue Hubbard heirloom squash cannelloni, golden chanterelles, braised leeks, spaghetti squash, and apple cider brown butter with Styrian pumpkin seed oil. It is like fall on a plate."
