Stowed away inside the seven-story atrium of the Embassy Suites Chicago North Shore rests Cadwell's Grille, an upscale restaurant helmed by Executive Chef John Grosskopf. A Cooking Academy of Chicago graduate, Chef Grosskopf has created menus and recipes for several fine dining restaurants in the Chicago area. For the Cadwell’s Grille menu, Grosskopf puts a contemporary spin on American classics by stuffing meatloaf with white-cheddar-chive mashed potatoes, frying french fries in truffle oil, and crowning burgers with gourmet ingredients such as chipotle aioli and warm bacon vinaigrette. Each dish is plated delicately on white serving ware, allowing diners to clearly see the components of each entree and celebrity faces in each swirl of dipping sauce.
