SCRIBE vintner Adam Mariani will be hosting a SCRIBE Night on Halloween at Giant in Chicago, named no. 6 Best New Restaurant in America by Bon Appétit. We'll be pouring a selection of SCRIBE new releases, including the 2018 NOUVEAU of Pinot Noir, alongside chefs Jason Vincent and Ben Lustbader's simple and delicious Midwestern dishes.
The chefs behind Giant, the Logan-Square neighborhood restaurant which has attracted national attention for its Midwestern influenced-plates -- first met cooking together at Lula Cafe. Teaming with beverage director Josh Perlman, the trio opened their 44-seater spot in 2016. Giant, a name which references the Shell Silverstein (also a Chicago native) poem, "Me and My Giant", may seem like an ironic choice for such an intimate space. However, the menu reads bold, big and hometown reverent; with plates like biscuits, onion rings, baby back ribs, sweet corn, and homemade pasta - traditionally Midwestern-lowkey foods - but not like your mom made them.
RESERVATIONS are available through Reserve on the Giant website. Please mention you are a SCRIBE member upon booking.
