When Eric Wells became a professional chef, he fulfilled a long-held promise to his mother, who taught him the art of pairing different ingredients and create new dishes. At Ligali's Bistro, he spans two continents by fusing French and Asian flavors, spawning such inventions as lamb chops marinated in a shiitake-wine reduction and crab cakes topped with a chili thai aioli. He also crafts dishes that celebrate each culture’s food individually, such as the asian peanut noodles and the chicken breast provençal. Chef Eric also fits his dishes into picnic baskets, which diners can take across the street to Lincoln Park for a savory meal or an epic food fight.
