Tucked away in Roscoe Village, the rustic charm of Volo Restaurant and Wine Bar makes it a hidden gem for Chicagoland restaurant goers.
The dark wood tones, black leather and slate tables create an industrial interior that is almost urban chic. The restaurant?s contrasting backyard cabana lounge serves as a vineyard haven with private cedar wood cabanas, outdoor seating and a weathered barn. The natural feel of the d?cor works well with the organic ingredients and locally grown products that Chef Stephen Dunne uses in his ?New American? cuisine.
Volo serves only small-plates, striving to create a menu that allows customers to dabble in a variety of tastes and flavors during their meal. The seasonal menu includes items like steamed mussels with toasted garlic, chopped tomato and red wine. In addition to meat and fish, a selection of salads and thin crust pizzas are available.
Specializing in boutique wines from around the world, Volo designs selections of three half-glasses of similar wines served simultaneously. Volo?s wine flights, which change often, are designed for those who may not consider themselves wine connoisseurs. According to Managing Partner Jon Young, they allow people to build their wine confidence by testing their palate and choosing a favorite. Volo is happy to give their suggestions; each dish on the menu is given a symbol that matches one of the menu?s wine flights.
Come in on Mondays for half price bottles of wine or Tuesdays when you can order any three items on the menu for $25.
