Casual Dining, Upscale Casual
Since 2012, Wood has been an upscale casual destination for dinner and drinks in the heart of Chicago’s Boystown, landing on Michelin's Bib Gourmand list 6 times in that span.
The kitchen presents a range of sharable plates on a frequently rotating menu for dinner and Sunday brunch, focusing on peak season locally grown produce, house-butchered meats from responsible Illinois purveyors, housemade charcuterie, and bread from the wood-fired oven. Known as well for whimsical yet nuanced cocktails, Wood also features a list of affordable wines by the glass and craft and import beers.
The restaurant's name, "Wood", is an homage to Owner Franco Gianni’s father, who was a woodworker for more than 50 years. His family still runs a Chicago-area wood working factory to this day. Wood’s interiors feature hand-torched cedar wall paneling and an overall masculine aesthetic with elevated touches throughout.
