Avec is one of Chicago’s enduring food destinations. It boasts a sleek all-wood interior, and rows of communal tables that aren’t exactly comfortable, but do the job (particularly because long lines dictate that you shouldn’t exactly linger). It’s technically a wine bar, so there’s an extensive wine list in addition to a selection of beers and cocktails. Food-wise, the menu is broken up into shareable plates that range from charred octopus to stuffed dates, and large plates like confit chicken paella and whole roasted fish.
