Modern Twist on Maine Flavors

Ryan McCaskey

Acadia, Chicago

General Manager/Sommelier Jason Prah
Acadia, Chicago

With a name inspired by the Greek word for "idyllic place," Acadia is indeed a welcome respite for sophisticated diner. The high-end restaurant's stunning menu is overseen by chef Ryan McCaskey, an alum of esteemed kitchens like Courtright's and Rushmore. "At Acadia, however," writes Chicago Tribune critic Phil Vettel, "McCaskey is doing the best work of his career."
