Fancy Plants Italian: Featuring Four Star Mushroom

Lincoln Park, Chicago



Available for purchase
Banquet (20+ Guests)
With the weather getting cooler, I develop a real hunger for warmth, richness, chew, pasta, mushrooms, and romantic food. Let's have lions manes from Four Star Mushroom, candy caps, and some soulful Italian food. Usually we're BYOB, but Fancy Plants Kitchen now has a full liquor license, and will have cocktails, beer, and vino for sale. Ciao baby. See you Friday!
