"Genius" chef Phillip Foss has "reinvented fine dining" at this Pilsen New American where he prepares an "original", "standout" tasting menu in "intimate" (read: tiny) digs with decor so simple it has a "kind of pop-up feel"; the open kitchen "allows you to interact with the chef", so "real foodies" shrug off big-ticket prices since it's "more like an experience" than a meal – just "bring some nice wine" as it's BYO.
