Italian Spring
Daffodil season inspires changes to the menu at Potawatomi's Wild Earth Cucina.

                                             Fried artichokes from Wild Earth Cucina Italiana

Deep inside the recesses of the Potawatomi Bingo Casino, up the escalator, across from the gift shop... there is a place of wildness. And it’s not the blackjack tables. Audrey Vandenburgh runs the kitchen at Wild Earth Cucina Italiana, an oasis inside that gambling complex. Today is the debut date for Vandenburgh’s spring menu. Making their first appearance: PEI mussels steamed in lemon-vodka cream with stewed tomatoes, fried artichokes with white truffle mayo, wild king salmon with cheesy polenta and sautéed spinach, bone-in pork loin chop with a mushroom-onion cream sauce (appetizers $4-$10; entrées $13-$24). New desserts, too: cannoli with ricotta filling and pistachios, and peach cupola -- a pistachio cake topped with cinnamon pastry cream and peach amaretto gelee. Hours: Tues-Thurs 4-10 p.m.; Fri-Sat 4-10:30 p.m. (Potawatomi Bingo Casino, 1721 W. Canal St., 414-847-7626)
