Vie - 5 Course Iron Chef Dinner - Secret Ingredient - Pheasant!

Here's the review of our dinner at Vie in Western Springs on Tuesday, 11/3/09 from the Open Table site:

We attended the Iron Chef dinner (5 courses of pheasant) and it was excellent. The courses were small enough so that no one was too full after five courses, a sorbet and dessert. We recommend he keep the house smoked pheasant breast and scotch egg on the menu. The consomme portion was a bit small and the plate not warm enough so the consomme cooled off too quickly. The service was wonderful - attentive but not bothersome, water was always filled, wine was poured etc. The front room is quite cold - they need to work on insulating the windows a bit. This was November 3 - I can't imagine how cold (unbearable) it must be in the winter. We were even seated next to the gas fireplace and it was still chilly. We look forward to returning!

  1. I recently watched this episode and checked out his menu online because during the show because I was so curious. Glad to hear you liked it and we may check it out sometimes. Know of anywhere that has any great pumpkin dishes for the season?? I'd love to find a killer pumpkin ravioli.

  2. Hi Food Sage,

    Thanks for sampling our "frijoles negros" meal kit. Our all-natural, locally-produced food products are bringing the authentic taste of Cuba to Chicago and the midwest. Hope you'll sample our artisan Sofrito saute seasoning that makes Arroz con Pollo (Spanish yellow saffron rice & roast chicken) as easy as "uno, dos, tres!"
