Love the seasonal fresh food, informative waiters, attentive staff. Constantly changing menu which makes it a great place to go. Love Zak's in downtown Hinsdale. The owner/manager has another home run with TWO in Chicago. My sister & her family are there all the time since they live there.

Two has an inviting atmosphere where diners are surrounded by beautiful second-life decor. They offer medium and small plates to share that feature in-season farm-to-table ingredients. Although there are a lot of spectacular offerings for the carnivores in our group, there were some delicious options for those of us who do not eat pork or beef. The service was exceptional... More

We were looking for a bit of a change-up from some of the other local restaurants we have visited, and heard about Two from some friends. We decided to stop in and have a drink at the bar. The two bartenders were super friendly and funny. We enjoyed talking to them and sharing a variety of stories. As we waited... More

Had a referral from a friend that I likely can never repay. Two offers a variety of small and medium carnivorously oriented plates emphasizing high quality ingredients. At two, it's not about white table clothes, it's all about amazing food. And I'm not someone that uses the word amazing lightly. Let me help you navigate your gastronomic adventure: Duck fat...

We first went to the bar. I love a bartender who is a mixologist. He made the most amazing drinks! When we got to our table, the menu was very diverse. We tried the pork chop, pasta and lamb, sausage and chicken, short ribs. Every one was outstanding. The atmosphere was really cool! Loved the whole evening!

This place really isn't sure what it's trying to be. They have starters and mains all on the one page yet encourage customers to order like tapas and share. Not sure how you're supposed to share a cheeseburger. We were told they couldn't guarantee all the food would arrive at once as the short rib and chicken would take 25... More

Just west of the heart of downtown and this is great! Just my wife and myself, but had fantastic Bison Short Ribs, Halibut and Chicken small plates. Order the bread too! Plus great service!

This restaurant serves excellent food and the menu is designed to enable a group of people to sample from a variety of small dishes. The waiter suggested two per person but this would cater for American appetites. We ordered seven dishes amongst five people on the basis that we could order more if we wished. As if turned out we...

We ate here early in the evening and our waiter was pleasant, recommending a tasty wine. They have "sharing" plates and server described them--food delivered as stated. They serve locally-sourced foods as available and you'll be eating in relaxed atmosphere. They open at 5 PM, enjoy a craft beer, or a delicious cocktail, a great meal, and relax. Kevin, the... More

This is the first place I've been to that admits that the "small plates/sharing" concept is a way to avoid the complications of trying to "stage" various entrees so they all come out at the same time. While I appreciated their honesty, I thought they were more pushy than necessary in discouraging individual ordering. The food was very good--a nice... More

Description
TWO Restaurant and Bar The comfortable atmosphere, with artful second-life decor, makes it a perfect West Side neighborhood gathering place. Influenced by the quality and tradition of family run butcher shops, TWO sources from trusted, small mid-western farms. They are often the first Chicago restaurant to feature renowned items, such as the heritage Hampshire pork, on their menu. TWO chefs make all their bacon, sausage, jerky, cheese, sauces and pastas in house and are constantly exploring new and seasonal dishes to feature those ingredients.
