The Bear Necessities

July 21, 2015

Erik Anderson, the current chef-in-residence, brings a sense of fun to the table, presenting a progressive tasting menu designed to entice and delight the senses. His menu features dishes such as a foie gras tart coated with a layer of toasted hazelnut milk and a sensational savory-sweet custard infused with hay. His sense of play is not only in his food but also in the way he has outfitted the dining room. A giant bear greets guests while enormous elk and bison heads adorn the walls and a trophy-size pike gleams in the spotlight. Erik Anderson’s culinary career blends his diverse experiences and artistic spirit. Though a Chicagoan at heart, Anderson is an alum of Noma, The French Laundry and Nashville’s acclaimed Catbird Seat which earned him a place on Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs 2012 list. Chef Erik Anderson is about to pass the torch. Guests have until July 25th to enjoy his tasting menu at Intro. Seize the opportunity, it’s a 'bear' necessity!
