Classic French recipes receive a modern twist at Jilly's Cafe, which Centerstage Chicago hailed as, "one of Evanston's most romantic restaurants." The ever-rotating selection includes European staples, such as duck leg confit with a plum-ginger sauce as well as spring rolls filled with an eclectic mixture of mushrooms, sweet cherries, spinach, and brie. This whimsical fusion of global flavors allows the chefs to routinely design new dishes that showcase techniques and ingredients from France, the United States of America, and beyond.
Befitting its menu of bistro-style French cuisine with contemporary flair, the decor at Jilly's Cafe aims for a balance between casual and refined, like bowlers in tuxedos. White linens cover the tables and gilt-framed paintings adorn the textured walls. At the same time, touches such as the displays of handpicked flowers lend a bit of inviting, homespun charm to the space.
