To our wonderful Extra Virgin guests
Due to continuing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily pause our dine-in and carryout until Friday, June 5. Our primary concern has been, and always will be, the safety and well-being of our patrons, staff and community. We are using this time to perform additional deep cleaning and sanitation throughout the restaurant.
We are grateful for your ongoing support and understanding as we navigate these challenging times — and look forward to serving you again at 5 p.m. on June 5. Be well.

…His mother, a restaurant manager, familiarized him with the daily grind of the kitchen — from peeling potatoes and shrimp to cleaning bathrooms and washing dishes — as the family moved from town to town after Michael’s birth in Gettysburg, South Dakota. After earning a degree in Psychology at the University of Southern Colorado, Michael began work at Chateau Pyrenees, a French restaurant in Denver, where he studied under Jean-Pierre Lelievre and, later Georges Mavrothalassitis. In 1985, he traveled to the South of France to cook and while in Nice and Cassis he discovered the traditional European approach of artisinal products made from the freshest local ingredients. Fueled by this resonating impression, Michael returned to Chicago in 1987 to work as Sous Chef at Charlie Trotter’s. Not satisfied with his European training, he returned to Nice, France in 1989 to be the Executive Chef at L’Albion. Upon his return to Chicago in 1991, he worked as Co-Chef at Carlos’ in Highland Park and then Executive Chef at Gordon until 1994.
