What Micky Eats...

Summary: “Led by Executive Chef Dean Zanella, Rhapsody shares a menu inspired by fresh Italian flavors and local, seasonal ingredients. Rhapsody offers a refined yet casual environment in Chicago’s cultural and shopping districts. The restaurant is walking distance to some of the city’s top destinations such as Millennium Park, The Art Institute of Chicago, Michigan Avenue and State Street, as well as adjacent to Chicago’s Symphony Center.” After walking down to Grant Park with a coworker and seeing the Buckingham Fountain, we were looking for a more casual place to have dinner. However, the humid weather narrowed our search grid and thus we settled upon Rhapsody. The cute garden patio looked nice, but we opted for the indoor dining area with its refreshing AC. The menu had many fine ingredients highlighted such as local white fish, as wells as pastas and steaks. I decided to go with one of the day’s fish specials and am glad I did so. The fish was cooked rare/medium-rare per Chef’s recommendations, and was surprisingly very light in both texture and flavor. The summer vegetables that accompanied were so vibrant and flavorful in their own right. I truly enjoyed this meal and the ambience was very quiet and soothing – perfect for date night or small business meeting. My coworker enjoyed his beef kabobs so much, that he returned another night with other coworkers. I was told they also enjoyed the food and atmosphere and had a lovely dinner there.
