Food:: Chicago: Nellcôte

It’s been a while since I’ve done a food post. Over the weekend, I stumbled upon a beautiful restaurant called Nellcôte, which is actually named after Keith Richards’s (Rolling Stones guitarist) mansion in the south of France. The restaurant boasts Parisian elegance and opulence, and the color scheme that was used created an atmosphere that made you feel as if you were actually in a mansion in France. Effective and brilliant. I’ll go more in depth in the post. But for now, get your Francophile hats on and enjoy the ride…

Agnolotti// Stinging nettle, Ricotta, Garlic chips, Chive blossom, and Grilled spring onion butter– All these flavors and textures meshed together made one heck-of-a-dish.

Mascarpone Cheesecake/ Because even if my dinner stomach is full, it doesn’t mean my dessert pouch is, too.

In the front of the resto, there is something that makes you want to eat there even more. Floor tiles! No way. One of my favorite hobbies include searching the city for tiles like these. Very hard, let me tell you that much.

When you leave, take a sharp right and go down a block. You will see the quirkiest, cutest wall art on your right. Look at how adorable these images are! Treasures.

P.S. I posted the second one on instagram and the artist actually found my picture! How neat is that? Check it out: https://instagram.com/p/3_8bScl875/?taken-by=pearofheels (his username is @_pennypinch_)DSC_1175
