This One’s For Our Indecisive Diners

This One’s For Our Indecisive Diners

Feb 26, 2018

For all of you indecisive order-ers out there – the “I want to order one of everything on the menu” diners – we’ve got some dishes that were designed just for you. Because when everything sounds delicious or you’re just not sure what type of drink you’d like – why should you be limited to trying just one thing? Many of our restaurants have designed cocktail flights, dessert tastings and dish samplers that will give you a taste (or sip) of variety so you won’t ever have to settle with trying just one piece of pie for dessert.

From martini flights to whiskey tastings, spread samplers to dessert trios, BBQ slider trios to ceviche samplers, here is our guide designed for all of our indecisive guests out there.

First question should always be, what would you like to drink? Are you feeling wine tonight? A martini? Or perhaps you want to try something new? Here are some boozy options to try.

Wildfire’s signature Martini Flight offers a sampling of a Cosmopolitan, Green Apple Martini, Wild Raspberry Cosmo and a Stormy Night.  (Available at all IL locations and Eden Prairie, MN.)

If you opted for vino, all Wildfire locations offer a sampling of four different wines with a choice between white varietals, jazzy reds and premium reds for both lunch and dinner.

More of a beer person? Sip on Wildfire’s beer flights which include four brews on draft to enjoy during both lunch and dinner at all locations.

To make your reservation at Wildfire, click here.

Bub City is serving up a Choose-Your-Own Whiskey Flight. How it works? Select three whiskeys from one of these classes — Coach, Business or First — or choose to “upgrade” by mixing-and-matching from Coach and Business. The perks – you get to sip on some of the most exclusive and sought-after whiskeys around. Enjoy your flight all day, every day at both the River North and Rosemont locations.

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! offers a Sherry Flight – one that’s sweet and one that’s more dry which is paired with jamón and olives; perhaps the most Spanish way to start a meal.

Mity Nice gives you the opportunity to create a Beer Flight by choosing three or four beers. Because they’re so “mity nice,” you even get the option to add a complimentary seasonal beer to you flight.

If oysters are more your speed but you can never remember if you’re team east coast or west coast, Oyster Bah and Shaw’s Crab House offer samples that are the perfect way for new (and wanna be) oyster connoisseurs to find out what varietals you like.

Oyster Bah’s Oyster Sampler is available all day by the half dozen or full dozen and gives guests the chance to sample a variety of fresh, flown-in-daily east and west coast oysters.

Before you decide to order the entire left side of the menu to start, here’s a better way to order appetizers.

Chef CJ Jacobson is known for his delicious dips and spreads at Ema so it seems unnatural to order just one. Enter the spread sampler which offers the choice of three spreads, served with housemade bread available for lunch, brunch and dinner

Nacional 27 is know for their fresh signature ceviches. If you want to try a variety in one sitting, opt for the Signature Ceviche Sampler with Shrimp & Scallop, Citrus-Cured Salmon and Ahi Tuna & Watermelon all in one order.

You definitely need to sample Polynesian bites with your tiki drinks at Three Dots and a Dash. A fun way to do that, especially if you’re out with a group of friends, is to order Captain Dino’s Pu Pu Platter complete with Yuca Frites, Hanali Spring Rolls, King Crab Rangoons, Coco’s Coconut Shrimp, Thai Fried Chicken and Macadamia Nut Beef Meatballs. The Pu Pu Platter serves up to four people, plus we think it’s pretty Instagram-worthy.

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!’s Pintxo Platter with Chorizo-Wrapped Medjool Date & Cheese, Bacalao Croquette, Ibérico Chorizo, Seared Cana de Cabra with onion jam & membrillo honey, Deviled Egg with crispy jamón serrano, and Stuffed Olive with white anchovy & piparra pepper, is literally designed so you can try a bite of everything.

Build your own platter with a choice of one meat, like Smoked Turkey BreastFried Chicken and Slow-Smoked Ribs, and complete it with three sides like Cheesy Spoonbread, Brussels Sprouts and Sweet ‘Tater Fluff.

Craving seafood but can’t decide which route to go? 

Stop debating and order the Oven Roasted Seafood Platter at Wildfire. Think: Crab cake, bacon-wrapped scallops, cedar-planked salmon and coconut shrimp all on one plate. This platter is available for dinner at all Wildfire locations.

Wildfire’s Dessert Trio is available for lunch and dinner at all locations and includes Homemade Key Lime Pie, an Ice Cream Sandwich and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.

Shaw’s Crab House  is known for having some of the best pies in the city so its your duty to try them all. Order the dessert sampler at both the Chicago and Schaumburg location, complete with mini key lime pie, mini pecan pie, mini creme brûlée and mini raspberry pie. These samplers change seasonally.

Antico Posto says its always appropriate to order dessert with lunch. That’s why they offer the Mini Sampler Tray which includes four mini desserts like the Chocolate Budino, Cannoli, Panna Cotta and Zuppa Inglese for $6.00 or  you can try each individually for $1.50.

Hopefully we’ve made ordering at your next meal a little bit easier with these sampler options. Now the question is: Which should you try first?
