Are you looking for a VIP experience in one of Chicago’s hot new restaurants? Then we suggest you try Baume & Brix chef’s tasting. Book a table for six in a vintage elevator shaft where you can experience a six-course dinner with optional wine and cocktail pairings. What we love about this unique experience is that you can try new selections that aren’t on the regular restaurant menu and dive into co-executive Chefs Thomas Elliott Bowman and Ben Roche’s unique culinary experience that changes for every occasion.

If $125 per person and optional $60 per guest for wine and cocktail pairings is the right price for you, check out this sample menu for what you can expect.
