Overview

Since 2004, Michelin recommended restaurant, Green Zebra, has been bringing vegetarian fine dining to Chicago by way of a popular tasting menu and a flurry of small plates. James Beard award-winning chef/owner Shawn McClain shows his creative chops in seasonal offerings that delight even carnivores, with dishes like the hen of the woods mushroom pate with sweet potato mostarda, and a vivid selection of New and Old World wines.
