To our wonderful Extra Virgin guests
With the new city mandate implemented on November 20, 2020, we must close at 10 p.m. That means we’ll take our last dinner reservations at 8:30 p.m. so diners can enjoy a leisurely experience. If you’d like to have a drink or appetizers at the bar at 9 p.m., we can accommodate you for a shorter time. We appreciate your understanding as we work through these safety issues while still creating a welcoming atmosphere with exceptional food, wine and service.
We’re looking forward to seeing you soon. Make reservations here or call (816) 842-2205. Consider carry-out to have the Extra Virgin Experience at home — our tapas-style menu is ideal for take-out. We look forward to seeing you — and for now will picture your smile behind your mask.
HAPPY HOUR 4 – 6 P.M. MONDAY – FRIDAY
Dine in only. Not valid on carryout. Enjoy lower priced tapas and $2 off all cocktails & wines by the glass. Tuesdays, enjoy happy hour pricing on drinks all day!

…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.
