If ramp and green asparagus pizza doesn't get you in the spring mood, check your pulse. You'll savor that and more at etta in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. Award-winning chef/partner, Danny Grant, fashions a seasonally inspired menu that utilizes its wood-fired hearth in unique ways. The kitchen team starts hand-rolling pasta every day before dawn so your bucatini cacio e pepe may be the best you've tasted. Rack roasted oysters or ricotta pillows are stunning ways to launch then choose from more than a half dozen salad and veggie items to get your greens. Larger format "for the table" items include fire-roasted whole Branzino sprinkled with capers and parsley and wood-fired chicken redolent of lemon, garlic and thyme. Desserts, cocktails and the wine roster are equally inspired. The Green with Envy cocktail (Hendricks, Chareau, pea tendril, basil, matcha, lime) is herbaceous refreshment. Definitely dine on the lovely rooftop terrace.
