Midwest Living Review
Subdued lighting glints off the extensive lineup of wine glasses in this date-night restaurant. It's a sign they want you to stay awhile and linger with multiple courses and wine recommendations. Artfully arranged meals make the lingering easy. Tender cherrywood-smoked duck arrives on a bed of acorn squash, earthy sauteed spinach and creamy risotto. Orange sweet potato threads on the top of the duck add color and crisp texture, while a drizzle of lingonberry sauce adds a tangy sweetness. The menu changes frequently to incorporate fresh produce and seasonal tastes and to complement entrees such as Duroc pork, lake trout, scallops, pasta, rack of lamb, filet mignon and king crab legs. Be prepared for special-occasion pricing (entrees range from $28 to $70 and wines range from $7 to $15 per glass) or go just for dessert. You'll find seasonal bread pudding, creme brulee and cake, but we suggest the signature West Baden chocolate dome. The moist cake layered with mousse and covered with chocolate ganache provides a sweet, fitting finish to a memorable meal, made even better by absolutely impeccable service.
