Walton Street Kitchen + Bar - Chicago
Ballyhoo Hospitality is a restaurant group specializing in neighborhood-focused eateries. They've done well with Gemini Bistro (Lincoln Park) and Codi di Volpe (Southport Corridor), and this latest effort takes on the residential section of the Gold Coast.
Walton Street Kitchen + Bar is situated on the first level of the newly constructed Nº9 Walton building, and it aims to be a go-to spot for those who live in the Gold Coast. The restaurant is open daily for lunch (it ends at 4pm!), plus offers a daily prix-fixe menu (4-6pm), happy hour (Monday-Friday), dinner and weekend brunch.
Highlights on the menu range from a salmon vesuvio and roasted Alaskan king crab to wagyu meatloaf and Chateaubriand carved tableside. The daily prix-fixe menu is three courses with offerings such as a Caesar wedge, king crab trompetti and butterscotch creme brulee.
