Graham Elliot Smith, Chicago

Graham Elliot’s menu was so whimsical and clever. The meal started with black pepper and truffle popcorn. Although a little stale, the flavor was nice. The music was fairly loud, but the restaurant decor was sleek and quite cool.

Creamy Potato Bisque- I really could not get enough of the fingerling potato bisque with crispy bacon and a marshmallow. The sweetness of the marshmallow and salt of the bacon were a great combination.

Not a fan of the air and flavored foam craze, but potato pasta was soft and tender

Tender fish and succotash

Root beer bbq sauce, greens and grit cake and fried chicken (from two sides)

Although the bbq sauce was very sweet and candy like, I really enjoyed the buttery greens and crispy corn cake.

Guinness Ice Cream (Guinness is my favorite beer) and a chocolate ganache slice with Pop Rocks with chocolate malt flakes.

Deconstructed Carrot Cake with cream cheese ice cream. The torn pieces of carrot cake were airy and reminded me of coral reef.
