Translated as "My Friend Gabi," this Lincoln Park bistro and steakhouse is a delightful find for expertly prepared French cuisine. Expect traditional dishes such as steak frites, Roasted chicken grand-mere onion soup au gratin and escargots with garlic-herb butter, plus plenty of fresh seafood and seasonal Plats Du Jour. The French know their way around a dessert menu and Mon Ami Gabi does not disappoint with classic profiteroles with housemade fudge, creme brulee and chocolate mousse. Select wine from a historic rolling wine cart - the extensive list features boutique French wines, handpicked by chef/owner Gabino Sotelino. Sunday brunch is equally serene and delicious. If you can't swing a trip to Paris for a special occasion, Mon Ami Gabi is a fine romantic substitute with warm interiors of mosaic tile floor and white tablecloths topped with butcher paper ala restaurants in France.
