Traveled to Chicago for my friends birthday. Went to Mon Ami Gabi for brunch and they didn't disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyed the brunch items and we had a wonderful bottle of Rose wine! What a way to spend a lovely Saturday afternoon.

Had dinner with friends in this French restaurant located in the Lincoln Park area. The French wine selection was good. But the best parts were the steak frites and the desser.

Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro and steakhouse. While the favorites are all here in abundance, there is always something new to try from the ever-evolving menu. The traditional menu features classics such as the warm Onion Soup Au Gratin, Frisee & Bacon Salad with a soft-poached egg and croutons, Roast Chicken grand-mere style with mushrooms, bacon and pearl onions, as well as the trademark Steak Frites. To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of over 80 boutique French wine varietals are served by the glass or bottle from our signature rolling wine cart. Guests will enjoy the airy interior with our large French windows opening out onto the Lincoln Park Conservatory, or in the summer months, the lovely outdoor garden. Please Note: Reservations are taken for indoor seating only. Outdoor patio seating is available on first-come, first-serve bases.
