Midwest Living Review

Karen Sorensen
This gorgeous restaurant, featuring a nouveau American menu, brings an excellent new taste to tiny Highwood's growing dining scene.

With floor-to-ceiling windows adding extraordinary light and a decor done in glossy wood floors, shades of moss brown, beige, goldenrod and, of course, sage green, Sage Grille offers a beautiful dining space. And it has a menu to match. The nouveau American cuisine changes with the season and weaves unusual pairings of ingredients and flavors in an effort to create bold new offerings. Sometimes this can be to mixed effect and come off as trying a bit too hard, but when they get it right, such as with the signature Three Little Piggies (grilled pork tenderloin, braised pork shoulder, roasted cauliflower, vanilla whipped sweet potatoes and bacon maple demi, $28), it's a home run. Check out the interesting starter menu, with its dozen-plus cheese and charcuterie selections, before delving into the menu, which is adventurous if somewhat limited. And bring your wallet. Most entrees are in the $22 to $30 range; add an appetizer and a glass of wine, and you're heading past $50-plus per meal.
