The latest member of Chicago's local food movement is B., a hyperlocal farm-to-table located at the newly renovated Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center just 30 minutes west of downtown (www.blocalbfresh.com). Centered around three core pillars; local, fresh and seasonal, B.'s "casually dramatic" identity is distinctive in every aspect of the original concept, from its modern design meets Audubon setting to its globally artistic menu designed by executive chef Sean Patrick Curry. Among the highlights, the 167-seat full-service restaurant, which is now officially open to the public, features a patisserie helmed by an award-winning pastry chef, a bourbon-focused lounge, Chef's Gardens for ingredient sourcing, and an on-site honey harvesting program aimed at raising awareness for declining honeybees.
