Everest Restaurant Review
Everest has maintained its perch above Chicago’s skyline for over 25 years; the spectacular view from the 40th floor never gets old. Evolved décor brought sleek silver fixtures and contemporary artwork on the walls. The changes made sense, the easier feel analogous to chef-owner Jean Joho’s personal vision. Chef Joho’s Alsatian roots dot the menu. One night, slow-poached farm egg, cauliflower mousseline, topinambours (Jerusalem artichoke) and black truffle appears first. On another visit, it may be home-smoked salmon. Then it’s on to roasted Maine lobster in Alsace Gewürztraminer butter and ginger, or tender venison surrounded by a wild huckleberry jus with fromage blanc knepfla. Another dish to ponder might be a dry-aged New York steak. Risottos distinguish themselves by their rich and creamy mouth-feel, as in a carnaroli version with fricassée of petite gris snail, Riesling and pain persillé. A vegetarian tasting menu is also available. The fact is that the food, even through seasonal changes, is never without creativity and unquestionable goodness. Desserts are no less artful or enticing, perhaps a chocolate tasting or Alsace new-style cheesecake. The wine list has the largest selection of Alsatian wines in the world, along with classic French wines and global offerings. Impeccable service adds to the feeling of luxury. Gayot.
