Last week we showed you the interior, the kitchen and a little of the food at John des Rosiers’ new Italian spot in Highland Park; tonight it opens to the public and you can just go eat there your own self (Metra stops just a couple of blocks away). What will you find on the menu being served by des Rosiers and executive chef Phil Rubino? Housemade pastas, crispy pizzas, housecured Becker Lane turned into pancetta… and above all, lots of fresh stuff straight from farmers. Check out the menus below.
