Magnolia Café

Chef Kasra Medhat's refined culinary techniques draw from his diverse gastronomic history, from his childhood filled with Turkish- and Iranian-style family meals to his college internship at a Chicago gourmet restaurant, as well as his catering work. Today, Kasra captains Magnolia Café, where he infuses all that passion and experience into his innovative French-American recipes.

In the kitchen, Kasra and staff cobble together ingredients plucked during their peak growing season in a variety of meat and seafood dishes. Upon white tablecloths, plates of appetizers and entrees meet with the house's specialty martinis and boutique wines in crystalline glasses, which are great for clinking or playing pieces from Mozart's glass-harmonica phase. Soft jazz music pulses amid the exposed brick and beams that ring the dining room, which is speckled with hanging photos of the flowers from which the establishment takes its name.:]]

Customer Reviews

pleasant atmosphere, tasty and quality food, expensive..
Vivi D. · December 16, 2012
We were a tad put off that we had to wait 5-10 minutes for our server to greet us, especially considering we were the one and only table in the entire restaurant (waiting to be greeted is my bf's biggest pet peeve when dining out). Otherwise the service was good and the food was excellent. We will definitely be back!
