In May 2014, Ceres’ Table opened in Chicago’s bustling East Lakeview neighborhood. Chef Giuseppe Scurato, who introduced Ceres’ Table in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood in 2009, joined forces with All Day Hospitality’s Caryn Struif, a Chicago restaurant veteran, to expand upon the successful concept that was previously named a “Best New Restaurant” in Chicago magazine and earned four consecutive Bib Gourmand awards from the esteemed Michelin Guide.

The restaurant features regional, Italian-inspired seasonal plates that pay homage to Chef Scurato’s Sicilian heritage with respect to the technique, process, and history of his native cuisine. A reflection of the Italian lifestyle, Chef Scurato has forged meaningful connections with Midwestern farmers in the spirit of cooking with seasonal, local, and sustainable ingredients. In the new, larger space, Chef Scurato has expanded the menu to feature new offerings, including homemade pizzas cooked to perfection in a newly installed wood-burning oven that sits at the heart of the restaurant.

Ceres’ Table kitchen is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 10pm and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 10:30pm. Pizza from the wood-burning oven as well as Salumi and Formaggi offerings available until close. Brunch service will begin this summer and will be available Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm.
