Eating Dessert for Dinner at TRU in Chicago
TRU is a whimsical waltz through culinary heaven - caviar ascends a staircase and tuna tartar is served atop a bowl of Japanese fighting fish. This playful attitude towards haute cuisine extends to the unpretentious and attentive service. Before you even sit down, a stool for your purse appears. If you get a chill, staff will provide a shawl. Heading to the restroom? Yes, you get an escort. An evening of such extravagance has a hefty price tag, unless you skip the 9-course tasting menu and go right for the best part – dessert. After the evening rush, diners can reserve a table for a dessert-only meal and be treated to multiple courses of pastry chef Gale Grand’s stunning confections. With dessert this good, who needs dinner?
