This global Little Italy eatery is named for the golden ratio, a mathematical principle used by artists and architects for balance and symmetry; the partners behind the place, first-timers on the Chicago scene, say they aim to create a sense of connectedness between you and your food. The locally sourced, often organic menu draws influences from the Mediterranean, Asia and Europe, featuring dishes such as pistachio-crusted chicken served with a spinach fettuccini Milanese and green bean almondine, or the Mar y Tierra flight appetizer, a combo of steak tartar and mahi mahi ceviche served on edible wheat spoons. A roaring fireplace serves as the dining room's focal point. Outdoors, a 62-seat patio is the main attraction. Making a night of it? One Six One is connected to The Bar 10 Doors.
