42 grams (formerly Sous Rising) — Chicago (1/2014)


42 grams is the newly-opened brick and mortar version of Sous Rising.  As soon as they announced when they would be opening, I worked in a trip to Chicago so I could see the new place.  I did not plan it to be their very first meal in the new establishment, but given the weather happenings of that past week and other things, I was part of the first eight to dine at the new restaurant.  They plan for two seatings, and I had signed up for the later one at 8:30, which is the one they ended up having anyway.

The restaurant is actually just downstairs from where they used to serve.  The opening configuration looks very nice – homey and welcoming.  In addition to a large dining table, there is a counter for the second seating overlooking the kitchen area.

 As tradition goes, the centerpiece provides the opening crispy snacks.  At the counter, each pair of seats had a presentation.  The snacks included Vidalia onion paper, flax seed puffed chip dusted with kale and togarashi, and salmon skin fried and dusted with potato powder (like fish and chips).
