Tasty Tuesday: EPIC

When you're downtown and looking for a restaurant that has it all look no further than Epic. Located in Chicago's River North area Epic is the perfect spot for happy hour on the patio, a dinner date or late night drinks on the rooftop. Yes, Epic not only has a gorgeous space indoors but they also offer a patio and rooftop to enjoy the beautiful summer weather outdoors.

Aside from the ideal location they offer a menu with a wide variety of options that focus on seasonal ingredients (something I absolutely love at a restaurant).

We started the evening with the beet & apricot salad that had feta cheese, red onion and a light cucumber dressing. This salad was a highlight because the cucumber dressing was the perfect compliment to the beets, salty feta cheese and sweet apricots.

For our entree we split the seared scallops with pearl pasta risotto, grapefruit and spinach. I'm slightly obsessed with scallops so this was right up my alley. The scallops were extremely fresh and cooked perfectly alongside the creamy risotto and the grapefruit.

We also ordered a side of the roasted summer squash with tomatoes and manchego cheese. The squash was absolutely delicious with the sweet tomatoes and creamy cheese.

After the amazing service and incredible food at Epic I'm definitely planning a return visit before the summer is over to take advantage of the patio and rooftop views.
