This spot with swings dangling from the ceiling and cloud sculptures looks like something you’d find in River North rather than in the middle of a strip mall near O’Hare. Some of the food is pretty straightforward, like their salo plate with cured pork, bread, and mustard. Other options are much more creative, like borscht that gets drizzled over vegetables and meat, and holubtsi that comes in the form of stuffed cabbage balls (rather than rolls) with a leaf-shaped cracker on top. We like both approaches, so try a little of each style. As long as you prioritize a mousse dessert, like passion fruit or cherry, you'll be in good shape.
