EPIC Restaurant

The new summer menu at Epic has taken dining to another level. Chef Dan Marquis has created unique dishes incorporating many of his organic greens found on his family farm in southern Illinois and the flavor profiles are sure to wow even the most seasoned foodie. Whether you’re in the mood for fish, pasta or meat, Epic has you covered. Starters like the Roasted Baby Octopus with chorizo and spearmint pesto,  Pork Fried Walnut Tart with honey roasted peaches and black raspberry mascarpone and the fluffy and light Jonah Crab Cake will surely get the evening going in style. The salads all feature the Chef’s organic farm greens found in very few restaurants and provide a light and refreshing mid course to your meal. Customers are raving about the Duroc Pork Chop with mint spaetzle, peaches, walnuts and ginger jus. The Miso Glazed Halibut, Whole Roasted Trout, Lemon Sole Roulade and Seared Diver Scallops are some of the fantastic offerings from the sea. No trip to Epic would be complete without sampling the steaks and meats they have become famous for. Chef Dan has made a NY Strip come alive with arugula, pecorino and marrow hollandaise. The Wagyu Sirloin and Rack of Lamb with baby carrots and minted English peas have already become new fan favorites. Be sure to save some room for desserts that will melt in your mouth! Eating this menu in the stunning and dramatic dining room with fabulous city views is truly a great Chicago dining experience.
