I did a fair amount of online research prior to our visit to Chicago and was so happy I decided to give Avec a try. I wanted to eat somewhere hip, but not over the top serious with the food (I'm not into foams and gelees). I also wanted somewhere that offered small plates so my husband and I could share a few. The food was really nice...especially the cheese our server selected to pair with our wine. We also got a duck dish that was so so...it had a cold salad on top of it that just didn't seem to mesh well. All in all, I would recommend Avec to anyone wanting to sample several small dishes and have fabulous wine pairings.

The atmosphere is somewhat raucous (read: noisy), so if you're hoping for a quiet, romantic evening try somewhere else. Avec is ideal for a group of friends...but get there early as tables can be hard to get in this small eatery.

I would highly recommend for a night out with friends or with an adventurous date. The selection of wines are pair with the meals. Expect to spend about $50/per person.

Avec is a trendy tiny restaurant with a tiny menu, but it offers quality atmosphere, food, and service. The theme rustic and communal, and the food is largely small plates and Mediterranean. Going to Avec is a very unique experience, but it is not for those who need a lot of personal space or wide selection. It is, however, for the adventerous spirits out there who appreciate interesting food.

Editorial from

A follow-up to Blackbird, this highly seasonal (and always creative) restaurant is situated next door. With a name that's French for "with," it's no surprise that you'll eat in close proximity to other people---it's part of the experience,…

 

Wait, you're the expert.

If you've been to or used Avec, leave a review.
