Overview

Chef/owner David de Quay’s elegant De Quay showcases the link between Dutch and Indonesian cuisines in Lincoln Park. Diners feast on dishes like black pepper gouda dumplings, braised beef short rib with rendang croquette or Indonesian-style fried rice with pork belly and duck cracklins. The rustic, wood-dominated dining room features a marble-topped bar where diners drink Old World wines, eclectic beers and cocktails.
