No one ever expected anyone in Chicago to give Charlie Trotter a run for his money, but former spouses Rick Tramonto and Gale Gand have managed to exceed their Lincoln Park culinary rival in the eyes of some. But where Trotter’s is a study in formal elegance and studied excellence, Tru conveys the essence of bacchanal, a celebration of the art and craft of creation and cuisine. From the caviar-staircase appetizer, on through to the renowned dessert decadence of Gand, Tru is an experience to be savored.
