The 21st century pandemic has caused too many restaurants to put up the padlocks, however, some have managed to successfully shift to delivery and take-out exclusively. One of note is the trailblazing Mediterranean restaurant, avec, offering take-out for the first time from classic small dishes such as bacon-wrapped Medjool dates and potato and salted cod brandade with garlic bread and chives to their bestselling "around the world" wine dinners... to-go! Chicago's "avec at home" has expanded to offer avec rotisserie, a new fast-casual take on Middle Eastern food. Chef Perry Hendrix' menu highlights Middle Eastern and Southwestern European flavors via rotisserie chicken, lamb, falafel and hearty sides like falafel seasoned French fries, charred snap pea tabbouleh and house made hummus. Make it a party with add-ons like bottled wine, wine bundles, beers and home bar kits curated by avec.
- Take Out: "Order avec rotisserie every day from 11am to 3pm and/or order the classics from avec everyday from 4:30 to 10pm - delivery and takeout via TOCK."
- Lunch: "Gather two-to-six culinary compatriots and reserve avec lamb roti, whole roasted lamb shoulder served with warm pita, mezze and sauces pulsing with flavor."
- Best for Take Out Because: The restaurant's much-loved hearty and healthy Mediterranean dishes as well as new rotisserie items are now available to-go.
- Best for Lunch Because: Hearty and healthy Mediterranean-meets-the-Midwest dishes in a lively communal atmosphere should put avec on your must-visit-for-lunch list.
