New on the near north side, Penn and Palate offers contemporary comfort food

Chef Bill Julian from Penn & Palate shares dishes from their contemporary comfort food menu. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner six days a week and expanding to a Saturday and Sunday brunch in the future. The first restaurant, The Legend, opened in May 2003 in historic Irvington, and the owners are excited about being part of the revitalization of the 16th street corridor and serving the historic neighborhoods of Herron Morton Place and the Old Northside. The restaurant will incorporate the artistic nature of the neighborhoods into the aesthetic of the restaurant, respecting the art deco nature of the building, all the while creating an exciting dining experience.

Chef gives us a preview of some of the dishes they will be offering including
