Delicious DIRT. Only Pleasure: No Guilt At Gilt

Inside: Gilt Bar.

A True Fave We Crave.

One thing you already know about the DIRT Team is that we LOVE to eat.  We chow down regularly and do not hold back.  Life is too short and food tastes too damn good.  Not every resto is as drop dead delicious as Gilt Bar. #EveryBiteDelights. In case you need a reminder, our quickie Gilt Bar food porn below is sure to trigger you in ways you might not want to share…  Thank you Brendan Sodikoff. You created greatness we literally crave. Love, #DeliciousDIRT

Delicious DIRT. EATS

Last night, we dined at one of our favorites- Gilt Bar.  Believe us, we felt only pleasure, no remorse.

Mouths will water… taste buds will thank you. EVERY BITE is better than the next at Gilt Bar. Thank you Brendan Sodikoff, Love, Elevate Your Presence & Chicago Food Mafia.

Gilt Bar's Short Ribs

It truly does not get better than this mushroom truffle pasta Gilt Bar. Chicago Food Mafia can not get enough. Again, Brendan Sodikoff, we can’t wait to devour more…

Gilt Bar's Truffle Pasta

Banana split never hurt anyone… Chicago Food Mafia felt no guilt at Gilt Bar savoring every bite….

Banana Spilt at Gilt Bar

Can’t wait to actually get on Food Mafia?  Here’s something to ease your anticipation….Below is a preview of MBK’s Food Mafia review of Gilt Bar posted a bit ago.

I have to say I can not believe I waited so long to try Gilt. My reason was simple- all the other restaurants in that space (many), have gone under so fast I thought it might not be worth it. Man was I WRONG! Gilt Bar has instantly become a favorite, a go to, and a staple in my regular rotation! In fact, I had my birthday dinner there this week and literally wanted to go back the following night… The atmosphere is my definition of PERFECT. It’s dark, yet not pitch black, it’s classy, yet not uptight, it’s lounge like, yet not cheesy. Gilt Bar is literally the perfect date spot. I have not even gotten to the food- in one word- exceptional. I loved every single bite more than the next. Here is what we ate- paris mushroom & truffle pasta, ricotta gnocchi w/ sage & brown butter, parmesan crusted whitefish (super well done) w/ lemon, butter, capers, brussel sprouts w/ probably the best bacon ever, & warm milk chocolate chunk brownies w/ tons of whipped cream, hot caramel & chocolate sauces on the side. I can not wait to get back there and I give Gilt the highest recommendation possible! Maude’s Liquor – their sister spot, opened this week too and is stellar…Stay tuned for DIRT’s report on Maude’s.  Don’t forget to check out Gilt’s downstairs lounge. AMAZING

We at Elevate Your Presence really LOVE when The New York Times features a growing neighborhood in the Chi. Wanna learn about what is soon to become your next hot spot? You’re in luck, yesterday’s NYT Travel Section hit on some of our go-to’s in Logan Square. Hopefully our fave local joints won’t get too slammed….

Delicious DIRT. Get Down At Favorite = Tiny Lounge

Tiny Lounge is absolute perfection!  It’s mellow, yet upscale, gorgeous, yet comfortable.  Smells from the kitchen – stays open serving premier cuisine until 1am folks- are AMAZE!  Tiny is a cult classic, one we hope never gets too too mainstream… yet, we know our hopes are idealistic as Tiny is always packed, always jamming and always top notch.

Tiny’s music, (incredibly important to us at EYP) is our idea of perfection – Tribe and Sugar Hill on a Saturday night?  Nothing better!  Playlists are hand selected by phenomenal owners, Mark and Colleen (more on them in future posts).

Tiny has been an Elevate Your Presence go-to since it opened years and years ago under the Addison stop.  There were weeks we spent about four nights a week at Tiny…  Since they reopened almost two years ago (Leavitt and Montrose in Lincoln Square), Tiny has blown up even more.  Old dwellers could not have been more thrilled- even created Facebook fan pages to unite in their happiness when it reopened!  Newbies can’t get enough of the food porn, the cocktails, the fabulous spirit of the Tiny!

More on Tiny soon… interviews, much more food porn, exclusives and deals…  EYP just HAD to post some of the goodness we devoured last night… Stay tuned for Tiny exclusives. Update-> Now serving brunch we intend to tackle quite soon.

Tiny Lounge Fave

FAVE – Ahi tuna tacos: grilled ahi tuna, avocado, zucchini, red pepper & wasabi.  Divine.

Tiny

Grilled chicken empanadas: fresh oregano, cotija cheese, chimichurri sauce at Tiny Lounge… Hot, flavorful, cheesy and NOT OILY.   SOOOO DELISH

Heaven @ Tiny

Delicious half eaten margarita super thin crust at the best – TINY LOUNGE. Could have eaten about ten more.  LOVE
