Basil Leaf moved from 2460 N. Clark Street to 2465 N. Clark Street in January of 2008 (it reopened in the Sage Food & Wine address, the Basil Leaf's sister spot). Owners merged the menus of the two eateries, keeping bestsellers from both restaurants (they ditched the gourmet carryout market and added more seating). Menu highlights include rigatoni with Italian sausage, bell peppers and onions in a light tomato sauce; chicken Milano with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, asparagus and linguine; garlic-crusted pork chops with roasted new potatoes; and fettuccine with blue crab meat and sweet peas in a creamy dill sauce. Seafood and veggie items are also well-represented.
