*Our Midwestern Omakase is unlike any dining experience you have had. The more we know about you, the more interesting the evening becomes. It is an intensely customized dining experience that is worth remembering.  For this reason we prefer reservations for the Midwestern Omakase via text: 312.292.8347 or email: movershaker@arborprojects.com 


As many of you have asked us when we will be opening on Saturdays 8/27 is the first Saturday dinner service. We will be posting a calendar on our website to keep people in the loop with available dates. To make a reservation send a text or email for some details of the dinner service. 

The Midwestern Omakase is 3, 5, or 7 courses. It is a passionate expression of Garden To Table that invites guests to entrust their meal to us with their input from a few questions. The menu changes every few weeks, so you can keep coming in for completely different experiences. 

The price of the menus vary based upon the cost and availability ingredients, but you can choose between the higher and lower tier. Please choose how many courses and which price point you would like, we do ask that guests order the same number of courses as it maintains the pace of the meal.

3  is $35 or $50                        5 is $55 or $75                          7 is $75 or $100

Wine pairings are $25, $40, and $55 additional based upon the number of courses. We have an extremely fun and quirky wine list that focuses on smaller producers, biodynamic, and natural wine practices. So, even if you slightly like wine, then explore the pairings. 

Lastly, please let us know if there is anything you can’t eat. We want to create a memorable experience for you so we look forward to hearing from you.

We are obsessed with developing flavor and creating food that you can get excited about eating. We want truth in ingredients, materials and interactions. We grow over 60 different varieties of vegetables, fruits and herbs not for fashion, but for sustenance. Our partnerships with producers are real and tangible because that’s sensible. It’s a difference you can see - and taste.

 
 

These are merely examples of dishes we write for guests. Each week Chef Leonard Hollander  refines and creates dishes with an obsession on sharing ingredients and concepts that are at their core ridiculously delicious. It is of the moment and from a place of passion where creativity can thrive. This is a core element in some of our most memorable dining experiences.

Yes, it is near crazy, but it's high reward...for the guest and us.

  • All of our beef and bison is grassfed and from small farm.
  • All of our chicken gets to hang out in the sunshine and pasture with friends.
  • All of our seafood is MSC certified and sustainably raised.
  • Our honey is from the roof of this building.
  • Most of our herbs and many of are from the backyard or rooftop garden.
  • Our flours are from IL or CA and ground fresh when we order
  • Our coffees and teas are awesome, for real, you'll notice.
  • Our kitchen is fifteen feet away, and it show.

We work to preserve the individuality of each and every ingredient and let it shine through in its most magnificent fashion. Our food is reflective of the seasons, connected directly to inspiration, and redolent of a place and time. Health is obviously an incredibly important part of life, but it MUST be delicious.
