    I believe it was Chicago Magazine's Our 30 Favorite Things to Eat Right Now list that put Peanut Park Trattoria on my radar, but I was surprised to learn that it had been open a few years already in the original Davanti Enoteca space.

    A friend and I shared:

    CALAMARI FRITTI

    CHICORY
    bitter greens, fennel, bread crumb, caesar dressing

    GNOCCHI
    vodka sauce, pancetta lardons, bread crumbs, chives

    HALF CHICKEN
    mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, salsa verde

    I enjoyed every course, but had a nitpick with everything but the chicory which was a standout. I thought the breading on the calamari was a little wet, the gnocchi a bit dense, and the half chicken maybe had a half-squeeze too much lemon. Or maybe I'm just bad at this whole restaurant thing, who knows. But the salad...what a knockout. Peanut Park is worthy of a visit if you're in or around the neighborhood.

    Having a walk down Taylor St after our dinner, it was kinda sad to see so many of the places I enjoyed are now gone. At least Mario's still had a line down the block.

    It’s been on my radar for a while and we’re finally heading there this week, so I appreciate the early intel.

    We were disappointed w/our meal there (numerous issues throughout) but this looks better than ours. Service was flawed as well. Sorry, tired of being understanding @ this point.
