Michelin starred, and Food and Wines Best New Chef 2008, Giuseppe Tentori, has developed a menu that's half-traditional, half modern, in an everchanging small plates format. The restaurant received three stars from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times, and 4 stars from Time Out Chicago.

Super service, the server Hannah was very nice with us, and explained in details their menu(a lot of choices)!
Small portions in certain cases, so better order one plate after the other, to see where your stomach is.

Oysters : miam!

Huge wine list!

This is a superb restaurant focusing on quality and service. It features small plates, that will satisfy your appetite so be careful and order one at a time! It is a noisy place and full of energy since its always full (for a reason). We liked the tuna poke, fish tacos, and lobster mac&cheese. Great place for raw Oysters (1/2 price oysters after 10 pm everyday). Reservations a must!

I'll explain the "twist" at GT after covering the basics of service and quality ... which, in a word, is superb on both counts. My wife and I are seafood fanatics, and in recent years have tried some 15-20 in Chicago's River North. Of these, GT is Top 3 in food and Top 5 in service; not the unrivaled best, but easily among the best. As for the "twist," GT features small servings, with wide selection. You can order two or three at once for a filling dinner, but we prefer to order one plate at a time, my wife pairing each with wine and me with inventive cocktails. The one at a time approach means we don't eat too fast, plus that we don't over-order and over-eat. One word of warning: we like noise and energy in an eatery, which GT provides in abundance; so if you prefer sedate and quiet, GT isn't for you.
