Being properly prepared saves students from flunking exams, pianists from plucking erroneous notes in public, and steaks from ending up as dog Frisbees. Chomp down on carefully crafted dishes with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of diverse and classic American-style fare and drinks at Entourage in Schaumburg, close to Woodfield Mall.
Much like the Bat Signal summons Ted Williams back to life, Entourage summons diners with a giant, illuminated, cocktail-shaker-shaped side bay window. Once inside, Entourage offers an upscale dining environment filled with American-style cuisine. Starters include the light but powerful mesclun green salad, which hefts a stilton bleu and dried cherry vinaigrette onto spiced pecans and Fuji apples ($6.75), while the creamy lobster bisque hints at spicy notes ($6.25). Firecracker shrimp tosses crispy fried gulf shrimp into a kiddie pool of sweet chili sriracha sauce along with cilantro, lotus root chips, and grilled lemon ($12.95), and the macadamia-nut-crusted tilapia with banana coconut butter is paired with jasmine rice studded with dried fruit ($24.95). Entourage also offers several specialty cocktails and an extensive wine list.
Entourage's cozy, warm interior offers gently lit wood columns in addition to dark wood beams, earthy leather seating, and natural stone accents. Throughout the year, brunches and events occur naturally, and guest DJs are known to ramp up the dance floor on the first Friday of every month from 6 p.m. to close, rewarding humans with surgically attached tap shoes.
- The dramatic two-story steel-and-mahogany entryway is the first hint you’re in for something big at this contemporary American hot spot. Suspicions are confirmed when you dive into a virtual mountain of hoisin–serrano chile calamari and a tender lavender-and-honey–glazed pork chop that’s four inches thick and perfectly cooked. – Time Out Chicago
