Au Cheval

Written by , Posted in Chicago, Restaurants

A little over a year ago I gushed about my love for Au Cheval‘s brunch here on the blog. Since then I’ve returned several times, but it’s usually for an after-hours “snack” like their single (which is actually a double) cheeseburger. Lucky for you I had my camera in tow on my most recent visit so you get a peek at Au Cheval in all its late night glory!

We ordered a bottle of wine because we needed the perfect drink to accompany our Foie Gras, Scrambled Eggs & Toast…because who doesn’t drink wine with their foie gras and scrambled eggs?! This was my first time trying this dish and it definitely won’t be my last because it was amazing-definitely not your typical foie gras preparation. Then, of course, I had the single cheeseburger topped with bacon along with a shared side of fries with garlic aioli. This burger is one delicious monster and I’m pretty sure it wins for best burger in Chicago. We finished off the meal with the sweet-but-not-too-sweet Mille-Feuille, another win for the night. Now…imagine yourself enjoying this meal with a little old school rap bumpin’ in the background…feels good to be a gangsta, doesn’t it?

  • This looks beyond delicious! I haven’t tried Au Cheval yet, but have heard awesome things and after seeing these pics will definitely have to try it out.

    • Definitely a must on my Chicago food list!

  • LOVE Au Cheval – and it’s in the perfect location for some food after wine and “light” dinner =)

    • Definitely my fav late-nigth haunt!

  • YUM! I’ve been there for brunch but never dinner- this reminds me I now NEED to go.

    • Obviously I recommend eating at Au Cheval any time of day! They also have the burger on their brunch menu so you can enjoy it any time of day!

  • Holy cow. I STILL haven’t experienced Au Cheval, but these pics are definitely making me want to expedite the process!! Great post and pics!

    • Thanks Stephanie! Definitely a must-do 🙂

  • It’s been way too long since my lips have made contact with that burger, oh so good! Definitely need to stop in soon (just wish I knew the secret to not waiting).

    • Hi Rachelle! Yes, the waiting can be a pain BUT if you go on off-hours for lunch and dinner it’s usually not quite as busy. I’ve also been right when they open on the weekends and had no wait/line whatsoever! Hope you get back soon 🙂
