The owners of Cochon Volant Brasserie today unveil their fifth Chicago restaurant, a new two-floor French restaurant in the Loop. Taureaux Tavern will eventually feature a 78-seat patio that will stay open all year and covered by a pergola. That patio will debut later this year, but the 288 seats inside the 7,000-square-foot space debut today at One Financial Place Plaza, 155 W. Van Buren Street.
The restaurant’s owners, WellDone Hospitality, announced Taureaux in March 2017. They’ve now brought on Chicago culinary veteran Mike Sheerin (Rockit, Blackbird, Trenchermen, Cicchetti) as executive chef. His menu includes daily specials like dover sole on Friday and other French staples like steak frites, roast chicken, and a $150 seafood tower. There’s also a French dip sandwich made with shaved wagyu beef.
Take a look at the lunch and dinner menus below. WellDone is a collaboration that includes Roland Liccioni of Les Nomades in Streeterville. He won the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Midwest in 1997.
Taureaux Tavern, 155 W. Van Buren Street at One Financial Place Plaza, open 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays.
