“The Italian countryside meets the American farmhouse…in Keith Richard’s basement bar.”

Enough said.  Sounds AWESOME.

“Three Aces is like the Italian countryside meets the American farmhouse, in Keith Richard’s basement bar,” said Co-owner Lyle Aker. “And we’re very excited to bring Chef Matt Troost’s cuisine to the neighborhood, which will include enough traditional Italian favorites to keep our Nana’s proud.”

While Three Aces serves as equal parts hangout and dining spot, Executive Chef Matt Troost (Fianco, The Peninsula Chicago and Montagna Aspen) places special emphasis on utilizing the finest locally sourced ingredients from area farmers markets and purveyors. Sample menu items include: Crispy Pig Ear (with fried egg, parsley, rapini, horseradish and saba), Wild Boar Sausage (with beet and bacon hash, poached egg and stout mustard), and Farm Egg Pizzetta (with parmesan, scallion, ricotta, pancetta and rosemary). Carrying a lineup of craft beers exclusive to the Midwest with “imports” limited to neighboring U.S. regions is also important to the Three Aces tri-fecta.

Three Aces’ space and shareable plate format play to each other. The menu takes on a seasonal approach and will constantly evolve to feature the freshest available ingredients. A sampling of Chef Troost’s delectable offering featuring classic and contemporary authentic Italian small plates includes Pumpkin and Pancetta Soup with Parmesan broth, cabbage, white beans and leek ash oil. Bask in Romano Pizzettas with tomato sauce, black olives, anchovy, chillies and Parmesan or Braised Chicken Thigh with roasted garlic, mozzarella and smoked tomatoes. Feed the sports beast with the Ace Burger with grass-fed beef, vivace cheese, trimmings, hand-cut fries, bacon jam, garlic and hops pickle or Pork ‘n’ Beans with roast porchetta, cannellini beans, apple mostarda.

Chef Troost will also serve up bar snacks until 1am throughout the week for those late night cravings. These bar snacks range from pork fried nuts, duck fat chips, farm beef jerky andrancho gordo popcorn to olive oil cake doughnuts and a variety of meats and cheeses. With all that Three Aces brings to Little Italy’s historical neighborhood, there’s no doubt that this new concept will quickly grow to become not only this neighborhood’s hotspot, but a destination all Chicagoans will seek.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Little Italy at 1321 W. Taylor Street. For more information, please call (312) 243-1577 or visit online at
