Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.


Posh Steakhouse, 7:00 P.M.
Danny Grant and Wine Director Belinda Chang, Maple & Ash, Chicago

At Maple & Ash, the opulent new Chicago steakhouse from Danny Grant and Belinda Chang, chophouse classics are reinterpreted for the modern era. Luxury is balanced with a sense of whimsy, as dishes with irreverent titles (think: “amuse booze”) deliver flavor-packed bites of unquestionable mastery. Beard House diners will taste playful plates like The M&A Swarm of Snacks; Pasta with a Chance of Truffle Rain; and Mom’s Sundae Tower.
