Elizabeth-092512.jpg"Elizabeth feels like Alinea went on a camping trip," said Anthony Todd about Iliana Regan's new restaurant. He added: It's "one of the best things to happen in Chicago's dining scene since I've been eating here." Pretty bold statement. Todd said flavors are "richer, less contrived and more satisfying than the average foams/dusts/gelee that dominate high-end restaurants" and appreciates that Regan's sense of humor shines through in dishes like "1 pill makes you larger" with a riff on Alice in Wonderland. Todd admits not every dish was a hit, but "out of 15 courses, one good-yet-unremarkable offering ... is a darn good record." [Chicagoist]
