Acadia is a restaurant in Chicago where you can order a tasting menu that is 5, 10, or more courses long. But what’s special about Acadia is you can also sit in the bar area and enjoy one of the best burgers in the city with tasting menu items on the side.

They are currently offering a seasonal Bar Tasting Menu that gives you a sample of what the dining room’s tasting menu might be like. The bar menu itself is concise but I like it that way because that means you usually can’t go wrong. It’s hard not to order the burger and the lobster roll each time.
