NYT: Lovitt and its solo-chef kitchen

HungryHoward | Jan 2, 2003 08:39 AM

Yesertday's NY Times Dining section was chock full of interesting articles. In addition to the piece on Hoppin'John that YourPalWill cited, the section also featured a spread on restaurants that feature a solo chef. Yes, just one knife-yielding, oven-monitoring toque handling the kitchen duties.

The article mentioned Norman Six and his Chicago restaurant, Lovitt. Located at 1466 N. Ashland, I believe Lovitt is in the former Savoy Truffle space. According to the Times piece, Lovitt has 28 seats, BYOB policy and serves seasonal American cuisine ranging from "maple-glazed salmon with squash and zucchini" to "stacks of crisp, golden scallop and salmon cakes."

For a one-man shop, the article is nice exposure for a Chicago restaurant, in a national paper no less.

There hasn't been any mention of Lovitt on the board. If you've been to Lovitt, would love to hear your feedback. Thanks.
