The Herb Risotto is Amazing

Risotto is a complicated dish and many restaurants fail at making it right. Chef Mauro cooks it the way my grandmother use too. Only Pelago really knows how to make it right in Chicago. Every bite will make you want another and I would gladly compare this Risotto to all others.

Excellent flavor and makes you smile like grandma cooked it for you. - Risotto at Pelago

Risotto

Made the old world way and no one makes Risotto this creamy or tasty in Chicago. Chef Mauro is the Best.

Authentic Italian Grilled Tuna

Tonno alla Griglia con Rucola e Patate

Grilled Tuna with Rucola and Potato Salad is one of the most perfect lunch plates offered off Michigan Ave. Chef Mauro is a Michelin Rated Chef that really brings a new style of cooking unlike anything else in Chicago. I have enjoyed many lunches at Pelago Ristorante and each one only gets better. If you love good food than Pelago is an excellent choice. I recommend trying the prefix menu for lunch – two course you pick pasta and entree for $24.00. It is an excellent deal for such high end food.

Grilled Tuna with Rucola and Potato Salad

An excellent mix of taste and flavor that gives you plenty of energy for the day and does not make you want to fall asleep after your meal. Growing up with an Italian Grand Mother, Tonno alla Griglia con Rucola e Patate is a normal lunch dish for us as kids. Please don’t tell my grandmother, but her grilled tuna with rucola and potatoes never tasted this good.

Best Gnocchi in Chicago

My Gnocchi or better know as potato dumplings with veal ragu and mushrooms have my vote for the best in the city. Not many Chef’s are this damn good. I am normally not a fan of Northern Italian food but Pelago is one of the few real fine dining Italian restaurants. No other Chef in the states compares to Chef Mauro’s style of cooking and this is one restaurant that you go to and than compare all others too.

Tips
  • Although the lunch menu differs significantly from what's served in the evenings, it remains upscale and shockingly cheap. Plan a midday tryst over tagliolini with organic spinach, crabmeat and roasted garlic ($13) or grilled halibut with roasted red peppers and bagna cauda sauce ($14).
  • The restaurant has a decidedly grown-up feel, so leave the kids at home.
  • The restaurant is very accommodating of food allergies, so let your server know of any sensitivities up front.
