Martini Flight at Wildfire (Cosmo, Wild Raspberry, Appletini with cinnamon on the rim, Stormy Night)

If you've never tried Wildfire, you're in for a real treat. The best things to try are the horseradish-crusted Filet Mignon (even if you aren't really a horseradish fan) or the nut-crusted fish of the day. One of my favorites of the fish has been the macadamia-nut-crusted halibut, but the other day they wowed me with their pistachio-nut-crusted flounder. Their food is just reliably very tasty and their service is always pretty good. My one "con" for visiting Wildfire is that it is a noisy restaurant, so not a quiet spot for a romantic date, but where you need to talk pretty loudly to be heard. However, I'll tempt you more with the food: redskin mashed potatoes seem to be made with cream and butter- don't count calories, but enjoy the masterpiece that they are! :) Each entree comes with a side and the portions are big. Expect to have leftovers if you plan to have dessert- and you should! The triple-layer chocolate cake is amazing, though as a true chocolate-lover, my favorite dessert at wildfire doesn't include chocolate. Ask for their their "off-the menu" Berry Crisp dessert, which is fresh blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, drizzled in a berry sauce, topped with a tremendous oatmeal cookie, crumbled on top (and what makes this dish the best)! It's all topped with ice cream, and yes, could be a meal in itself. Try out Wildfire if you haven't already- it's part of the Lettuce Entertain You network in the Chicagoland area and let us know what you think.
