Elske is the creation of husband-wife team David and Anna Posey, he the onetime chef de cuisine at Blackbird (which earned him two consecutive Rising Star chef nominations from the James Beard Foundation), she the pastry chef whose work graced Blackbird, Everest and The Publican.
The restaurant is a nod to David Posey's Danish roots, and elske is the Danish word for "love" (the two got engaged in Copenhagen), but you're not going to find anything especially Nordic among the sweets and savories. What you will find are highly creative, labor-intensive dishes, contrasted by an open dining room whose clean lines are anything but complicated.¨ - Phil Vettel, Chicago Tribune
Our handicap accessible second floor private dining room offers a dedicated full service bar as well as private bathrooms. The second floor area offers a modern, airy, and open space that while private still picks up the liveliness and energy from the main restaurant.
