Where we've featured it
Elizabeth is a small restaurant in Lincoln Square that feels a little like grandma’s house when you first walk in. It’s perfectly homey and a comfortable place to hang, which is how you’ll feel throughout the entire meal. It’s also run by the same woman behind one of our favorite places ever, the short-lived Bunny The Micro Bakery. The food is usually very plant focused, but they’re doing amazing things with simple ingredients. Is that the best homemade bread you’ve ever eaten? Yes. Should you start foraging your own mushrooms? You could, but you might poison yourself. Is that a foie gras owl sprinkled in edible flowers? Oh ya, and it’s delicious. If you’re not a big meat eater, Elizabeth is definitely the spot for you. And even if you love a good steakhouse, Elizabeth will push you to appreciate plants and other ingredients more than you knew you could.
Food: Varies depending on menu, ~$150 (plus tax & 20% service charge)
Optional Wine Pairing: ~$100
Optional Beer Pairing: ~$65
The tasting menu at Elizabeth is expensive (it starts at $165) and the meal itself is an experience. Each menu is themed - for example, inspired by Game of Thrones or the menu at Noma in Denmark - and runs for a few months. It’s an intimate restaurant where you’re practically sitting in the kitchen with other diners, so it feels more like you’re at a dinner party than a restaurant. But the food is both beautiful and delicious, and it’s definitely worth a big night out. Seatings go fast, so if there’s a theme you want to try, book it ASAP.
