Some nights, we just want to pretend like we’re a permanent resident of the Claremont Hotel. And that’s when we go to Wood Tavern. Every dish at this upscale American restaurant feels like it was made with more care than a miniature replica of the Tribune Tower. You’ll want the cheese board, the charcuterie, the pappardelle, the juicy pan-roasted chicken, and the coffee pot de crème for dessert. Despite the fancy food, this place feels more like a casual bistro, or a cozy ski lodge - but one with perfect service.
