A Hidden Gem- PaneCaldo and WineChannelTV in Chicago

Fresh baked bread out of the oven, olive tapenade,  bruschetta and bubbles before you even look at the menu is the ideal Italian restaurant experience. Pane Caldo in Chicago does just this, and more.

I stumbled upon this hidden Italian gem and was lucky enough to get right in with out reservations. Pane Caldo is definitely a great celebration or special occasion place to take someone.

Pane Caldo is located in the Gold Coast of Chicago, and has a Northern Italian cuisine that changes daily. For my main course, I went with the Capellini with Black Truffles, Caviar and Shitake Mushrooms with a nice, light, and crisp Caposaldo Italian Pinot Grigio which was a perfect match with it’s white fruit and acacia blossom aromas. This very affordable Pinot Grigio from Veneto is a great everyday wine.

However,  if you’re looking to splurge on a special bottle, they have quite the wine list! A few highlights that caught my eye were the 2004 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac for $1850 and a 1999 Screaming Eagle for…$3850.

Check out WineChannelTV at this Hidden Italian gem you won’t want to miss!

Cheers,

Jessica Altieri

    Hello Jess,

    Everything on your plate looked crazy-good! Would you recommend looking for this wine at my local retailer (or more likely, online wine shop.)?

    This is first rate stuff Jess.

    Best Regards,

    Martin
