How to Eat Cheaper at Two of the Sloop's Finest Restaurants

Eater Chicago explains how to eat cheaper at Chicago's finest restaurants and highlights two Sloop locations.

First up is obviously Acadia (1639 S. Wabash) - and if you're a reader of this here blog you probably already know this one:
In place of two-Michelin starred Acadia’s $155 eight-course new American tasting menu, hit up the bar for several similar plates at a lower price, a la carte. For example, Aleutian Islands King Crab with yuzu, parsley root, and a mint-nasturtium water becomes Peekytoe crab toast with scallion, garlic, butter, and arugula at the bar. Meanwhile, there’s also Stonington lobster with pickled mustard seed, celery, and caviar, which, at the bar becomes the Stonington, ME lobster roll.

Second is a good hack we weren't aware of at Everest (425 S. Financial Place):
While sky-high French boƮte Everest serves a $165 tasting menu, the hack is to come Tuesday to Friday at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays between 5 and 5:30 p.m. for the three-course pre-theatre $59 special. That menu changes daily, and if diners drove, complimentary valet parking is also included.
