CHICAGO | Are you looking for a cozy, rustic spot to dine at in Logan Square this winter? If yes, you must head to Table, Donkey, & Stick for a taste of Europe’s Alpine region on Armitage.
The name of the restaurant comes from a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, but the fact is that the food at this restaurant is more than just a fairy tale. Throughout our meal, we were so impressed by the authentically helpful service. Our waiter made some great recommendations which gave us a good cross-section of the menu. Items come out as they are ready and food is designed to share.
The honey vinaigrette on the Local Greens ($11.00) was the perfect start to our meal. While we grazed, our waiter helped us navigate the rotating cheese and charcuterie offering. We went with Saucission Sec and felt like we had been transported to a local French market. We were so impressed to learn that all meat and breads are prepared in house. We really enjoyed the Yukon Gold Potato Latkes ($6.00), which with a roasted garlic aioli paired perfectly with the Pork Shoulder Confit ($23.00) with chiogga beet, apple puree, sage, and jus. Our favorite dish of the evening was the Swabian Pretzel ($7.00) with cauliflower and comte fondue. It was rich and warm-the perfect winter fare.
Table, Donkey, and Stick offers predominantly European wines with a few offerings from Sonoma County and Napa Valley. On Terroir Tuesday, patrons are able to enjoy fine wines with no markup.
The venue is perfect for date night or an intimate dinner with friends so what are you waiting for? For us, Table, Donkey & Stick is one of Chicago’s must-dine-at spots. It’s also worth noting that if you enjoy the food at Table, Donkey & Stick and are looking for a lunch time option in the Loop, Danke at Revival Food Hall offers similarly influenced food but more suited to lunch.
