I have anxiously awaited checking out one of the new Chicago hotspots, Hubbard Inn. When I arrived last night, the warm, comfortable ambiance welcomed us into the room. I met my friend, Alyssa, for dinner, and we enjoyed a few glasses of wine with our meal.When I read the menu, my eyes were instantly drawn to the flatbread section, so I knew we had to share a flatbread as an appetizer.
The three cheese flatbread is made with Fresh Mozzarella, Pecorino Tuscano, and Monterey Jack Cheese. The pizza is cut into four slices and there is a drizzle of oil, basil, and some red pepper flakes on top. My one photo doesn’t do it justice, but it was a nice prequel to our meal.
The crust was crunchy, the tomato sauce was flavorful (not too sweet or tangy), and we enjoyed the taste of each of the cheeses. I especially enjoyed the presentation. Most of their dishes are presented on a cutting board, and for some reason, I found it intriguing and fitting for the atmosphere.
I had the hamburger for my next course and found it perfectly cooked. The special touch included a balsamic roasted tomato, YUM. Alyssa enjoyed her scallops as well. Overall, the Hubbard Inn served a great meal! It was nice to have the flatbread appetizer since they didn’t serve bread at the table, and we were hungry!
Hope you enjoy a meal there Reservations highly suggested.
