From Boka Restaurant Group and Chef Chris Pandel, Dutch and Doc's is Wrigleyville's neighborhood restaurant and bar serving upscale American fare for the whole family.
Located at one of the most historic cross streets in Chicago, our love for the North Side is reflected in all we do. Menu items are dishes we know and love. Teamwork is who we are. We welcome you to our warm, welcoming hangout with all-day friendly service and food that reminds us of home.
Take everything that connotes Midwestern charm—effusive goodwill, love of community, and a killer work ethic—and you will find its embodiment in Chef Chris Pandel. His food is just as appealing: rooted in global flavors and predominantly local Midwestern ingredients.
In 2008, Pandel opened neighborhood eatery, The Bristol. Located in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, Pandel's menu features handmade pastas and charcuterie; farm-fresh, locally sourced produce; and a nose-to-tail approach to cooking.
Balena, an ode to Italian influenced simplicity, opened in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood in March of 2012. Balena's menu consists of handmade pastas; pizzas from a wood-fired oven; and locally sourced, farm-fresh meats and produce. Balena was included in Bon Appetit's list of 25 best new restaurants in 2012, and was nominated for a James Beard "Best New Restaurant" Award.
In October 2015, Pandel opened the powerhouse that is Swift & Sons. The Swift & Sons menu displays Pandel's signature focus on high quality, locally sourced ingredients and refined cooking techniques with an elevated twist on steakhouse classics, a "boutique beef" program, thoughtful vegetarian dishes, and seasonal sides.
Next door at Cold Storage guests can enjoy simple yet refined seafood dishes that Pandel constantly rotates. Slurp on oysters or sink your fork into the catch of the day for a meal that gravitates you to the coast.
Taking his talent up north, Pandel presents his love for American cooking, refining classic dishes and taking flavor to the next level just steps away from one of Chicago’s most historic landmarks.
