Wine Savvy

future Chefs at Work

Walked into the Backstage Bistro and was welcomed by a friendly host that immediately showed my guests and I to our table. We were then approached by our server who was extremely friendly and knowledgeable on the food and wine menu. I was surprised with the wine menu, being an advocate wine taster I noticed that on their wine list they had really great half bottles as well as single serve bottles for a very modest price. I was also able to have a mini flight of some of my favorite wines for a reasonable price.

A really interesting fact is that the Backstage Bistro is run by culinary students that are about to graduate The Illinois Institute of Art. Not only is the kitchen run by students but the wait staff is run by students as well. My food was perfect when it was set in front of me, I ordered the Prosciutto wrapped Halibut and it was cooked to perfection. I was also very pleased with the wine that was paired with my food. (For those that are not wine savvy with food pairing, not to worry there is a student sommelier who is well trained to help you pair your food with a good glass of wine).

Overall the Backstage Bistro's idea of having an open kitchen, to where customers can watch their meals being prepared by ""future chefs"" was creative. Being able to enjoy a really nice glass of wine, I will definitely be back in the future.
