Chinoiserie Restaurant in Wilmette

Sweet Willie | May 18, 2002 12:25 PM

Chinoiserie, 509 Fourth Street, Wilmette. 847.256.0306
Hours: Tues-Thurs 4:30-10pm, Fri-Sun 4:30-9pm.
If coming from the City and public transportation can be used, Chinoiserie is only a few doors north of the Linden stop on the purple line (Linden is the last northerly stop on the purple line).

Chinoiserie proclaims itself as "nouvelle Chinese cuisine" but they serve more than that.

Wow, have not been disappointed w/ any of the dishes here. Average entrée price is $10-14. I'm not touting Chinoiserie as a knock out, but rather as a very good restaurant that serves a consistent high quality for a good price (especially Wilmette)

Dishes I've been pleased with include:
Chicken Normandy: with Asian Apple pears in a light Calvados reduction.
Chinoiserie Chicken: lightly battered chicken in a sweet garlic sauce
Northern Pike fillet in Black Bean Sauce
Chinoiserie Shrimp
Japanese Baby Eggplant: sautéed eggplant in sweet Asian sauce
Mongolian Steak
Drambuie beef w/Orange Glaze

Chinoiserie offers take-out and catering.
