The kitchen bustled behind teenage Enosh Kelley as he stood over the sink, dutifully scrubbing pots and pans while dreaming of becoming a chef. From those humble origins, recounted in a Metromix profile, Kelley has grown into an internationally renowned culinary artist lauded by reporters from the Wall Street Journal and nominated as best Midwest chef by the James Beard Foundation. Today’s Reserve selection invites you to experience celebrated French culinary technique with a four-course prix fixe dinner for two or four with wine pairings. For each person, the meal includes the following selections from the prix fixe menu, with a wine pairing for each of the four food courses:

  • Sparkling wine toast
  • Soup or salad
  • Seasonal risotto
  • Short rib or salmon entree
  • Flourless chocolate tort or crème brûlée
  • Coffee<p>

Pulling from his training at the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Kelley folds local ingredients into a French-inspired menu. Classic soups or salads give way to a risotto designed to pair beautifully with the weather outside. The main course presents each diner with a choice between land and sea, the former arriving in the form of boneless short rib cut from Niman Ranch Black Angus cattle. Its ultrasavory accessories include vidalia onion confit and whipped potato flavored with braising juices from the meat. Faroe Island salmon brings a brighter sensory palette to the table, the fish decked in Pernod-saffron sauce and surrounded by fresh dill, fresh peas, and fresh tomatoes. Purple potatoes ground the dish in fall’s flavors.

As they arrive in the heart of the historic Ingersoll Avenue district, guests find white-clothed tables decorated with freshly cut flowers. Nearby, framed photos hang artfully off-kilter on walls that resemble an extraordinarily well-kept country barn. Long, flowing curtains dangle from the windows to keep the lighting intimate while facilitating romantic games of hide and seek.

From those humble origins, recounted in his Metromix profile, Enosh has grown into an internationally renowned culinary artist lauded by reporters from the Wall Street Journal and nominated as best Midwest chef by the James Beard Foundation. Pulling from his training at the Culinary Institute of America, Enosh folds local ingredients into a French-inspired menu, favoring classics such as hand-cut pomme frites, duck orange, and gâteau marjolaine.

Nestled in the heart of the historic Ingersoll Avenue district, Enosh's restaurant—Bistro Montage—is a fitting canvas for his fine French creations. Plates pair with glasses of wine on white-clothed tables. Nearby, framed artwork speckles the brick-red walls, and long, flowing curtains dangle from the windows to keep the lighting dim and intimate while providing a convenient hiding place for guests on disappointing blind dates.
