Wild Mushroom Tartare at Mon Ami Gabi, Chicago, Illinois
Steak tartare – minus the steak. Instead, portobello mushrooms are cooked with Grana Padano cheese, chilies, shallots, and herbs, then topped with a sunny poached egg aioli,  and served cheese toast and greens. So meaty and mmm-inducing you’ll never ask, “Where’s the beef?” Make a reservation at Mon Ami Gabi.
