We really like S.K.Y. in Pilsen, so it’s not too surprising that we really like the food at Apolonia - a Mediterranean restaurant in the South Loop that’s from the same team. Like its sibling, the menu is wide-ranging with a bunch of influences. You’ll find everything from mussels on toast (wonderful) to truffle puff bread (also wonderful) to larger dishes like grilled prawns with corn relish and hibiscus romesco (guess what? Wonderful again.) Also, this place has some truly delicious pastas - like the fiorentini topped with a rich pork sugo. Come here for an upbeat date night, or if you’re ever at an event at McCormick Place.
