generations) with inspired new-age dishes.

Founded by: Owners John Ross and Philip Waters (aka B. Hospitality Co.) with Executive Chef Todd Stein

Classic Italian. Modern Twist.

Fun Foodie Facts:

  • Cardinal rule of cooking, fat = flavor. Don’t worry, it’s a walking food tour…you’ll burn those calories off a bit!
  • Executive Chef Todd Stein – Chicago magazine named him Best New Chef in 2010 and he has participated in Iron Chef America vs. Bobby Flay. He’s kind of a big deal.
  • In 2017, The World of Fine Wine awarded Formento’s as the Best Medium Size Wine List in the world (over 300 available).

Our recos: Get the whipped ricotta, bucatini carbonara and the prawns. Live a little!

Be sure to come back and also visit the B. Hospitality Co’s other restaurants:  The Bristol (up on the north side in Bucktown), Swift & Sons (steakhouse in Fulton Market) and Cold Storage (fancy fish shack right next door to Swift and Sons).
