Overview

Named after a Grimm Brothers’ fairytale, Table, Donkey and Stick captures the imagination with intimate, rustic décor, inspired by Alpine culture. Regional Alpine cuisine translates to modern dishes like duck liver mousse with rhubarb and cacao nibs or the Wanderteller “hiker’s meal”, a cheese and housemade charcuterie plate. Situated on the outskirts of Logan Square, this Michelin-recommended restaurant features a selection of wines hailing from Alpine/Germanic regions alongside a variety of beers from Austria, Bavaria and the Midwest.
