LM Restaurant Group is proud to introduce their thriving bar concept, Troquet, to Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The bar is the newest member in the LM Restaurant Group family, which aims to create a thriving French dining scene in Chicago that mimics what exists in Paris today. Troquet River North is located on the ground floor of the Hotel Felix at 111 West Huron Street, at the intersection of Clark Street.
“In France today, young chef’s open Troquets and offer fun, fresh, local foods in a casual bar atmosphere.” says Partners Stephan Outrequin, Nicole Quaisser and Martial Noguier. Troquet River North will be a neighborhood French bar focusing on wine and craft cocktails. Acclaimed Managing Chef Partner Martial Noguier, along with Chef de Cuisine Benoit Fliou, is overseeing all culinary aspects of the new venture and will grace his patrons with food from all regions of France. Fliou, a Paris-native, has worked in some of the best Troquets in Paris for the past 15 years.
The menu, created by these French chefs include:
· Gambas bisque with Saffron Garlic Cream
· Mussels with Fresh Thyme, Olive Oil and Lemon in packages
· Albacore tuna ‘plancha’ with fennel and carrottes puree and anis beurre blanc
· Roasted quail, egg quail, savoy cabbage and finger potatoes fricassee, pancetta
· Roasted pork belly, with homemade whole grain mustard mashed potatoes, arugula
In addition, the bar will feature a full beverage program with craft cocktails and a wine draft system featuring both reds and whites. The bar will feature live music every Wednesday and Thursday from 6 to 9:30 p.m. and every Friday and Saturday from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. For more information on performers, Chicagoans can visit lmrestaurant.com.
