schwa restaurant in chicago


mehran and his iphone dined at schwa restaurant tonight. chef michael carlson is one of the most innovative chefs i know of. tonight’s desert was frozen fois gras (yes), pound cake, strawberry gell, and strong black pepper ice cream. so good. the second desert course was beet ice cream with the essence of bitter bacon made by a barman from violet hour. i know this writing does not sound appetizing. blame it on me. once you see and taste the food, you will love it. the setting is unpretentious and intimate (13 small tables), and it takes about two to three months to get in (after the initial few weeks it takes them to return your call). thanks michael and the crew.
