Chicago is cementing itself as a must stop for a foodie's tour of the U.S. The latest tempting offering in the Windy City is La Pomme Rouge.
The lavish lounge sets a Belle Epoque scene with soft velvety couches, antique furnishings and a rich and moody color palate. The menu is designed for decadence. There is an expansive wine and cocktails list and a menu of deluxe treats including foie gras torchons with french green lentil, red onion preserve, sauterne gelée, and house-made brioche, a full caviar service, a traditional charcuterie plate, cheese selections and a quartet of oysters garnished with melon granite, Skyy berry mignonette, grapefruit sabayon and caviar-avacado mousse. Unique drinks include the Pomme Pomme, a take on the apple martini using Three Olives green apple vodka, Cointreau and Apple Pucker liqueur topped with a dried apple chip and a serpent ring and the Cafe et Beignet, an evening take on a morning classic that features Starbucks coffee liqueur, Baileys Irish cream and Van Gogh Double Espresso vodka garnished with a miniature donut.
