Photos: Onasis Odelmo for Storefront Company
Cynthia Rowley may only be in town for just a few days while she and husband Bill Powers host of Work of Art on Bravo scoop up the SAIC Legend of Fashion Award, but that doesn’t mean they can’t taste the newest treats from Chicago’s hottest restaurant right now. Last night at Storefront Company, the hometown hero hosted the launch of Chicago-based artist Gary Weidner's work on Exhibition A. Weidner's work adorns the walls in Rowley's boutique as well as Storefront Company (with a 30-foot mural) in The Flat Iron Building at North/Milwaukee/Damen. After the jump we've listed all five dishes that this arty crowd devoured.
Lamb meatballs with currants, pine nuts, house goat ricotta
Onions with Wisconsin emmentaler fonduta, sesame and potatoes
Fleur du Maquis with lamb merguez, olive bread, shiraz syrup
Quail with pistachio sausage stuffed leg, pan roasted breast, polenta, orange and cress
