Tasty Tuesday: Packing House

Randolph Street in Chicago (aka restaurant row) is packed with amazing restaurants including a new favorite Packing House. Executive Chef Amanda Barnes features bisto-style dishes that are modern American with Mediterranean influence. The atmosphere of the dining room is modern yet elegant and the indoor/outdoor patio is ideal for alfresco summer dining.

We started the night with a glass of Rosé and their homemade pickles. Even though I'm not a huge pickle fan I adore homemade pickles that taste fresh paired with seasonal vegetables. These pickles were perfect to share and a refreshing start to the meal.

Next we devoured the Ahi Tuna with Kohlrabi salsa verde. I'm slightly obsessed with Ahi Tuna so I knew I would love this dish. The tuna was extremely fresh and the salsa verde paired well with the mild fish.

Since my friend and I absolutely love scallops we had to order the scallop ceviche. Not only was the presentation amazing (so cool) but the scallops were fresh and delicious paired with a tangerine oil.

Our favorite dish of the night was the roasted corn with peppers and goat cheese. The grilled corn had an amazing smoky flavor and the slight tang from the goat cheese was perfect. I'm dying to try and recreate this dish at home!

The crab spaghettini was also a highlight of the night with preserved lemon, Parmesan, sambal chili, and chives. I mean who doesn't love crab and spaghetti paired together?

We ended the evening with an affogato, which is an espresso poured over vanilla ice cream or gelato. The vanilla ice cream also had sea salt and olive oil and was absolutely amazing with the espresso.

  1. Market used to be one of my favorite spots - I haven't tried it since it changed to Packing House. Looks good!
