Lazy Susan alert! The art deco dining room at this storied Prospect Avenue building (former home of Snug's, the Savoy Room, et al) is now home to simply named Supper.
The supper club inside the Shorecrest Hotel called (succinctly) Supper is putting on its official opening shoes. Dinner service starts Tuesday, Nov. 3. Owner Gina Gruenewald (who also runs Wolf Peach) calls it a “modern take” on the supper club concept. Supper’s chef is Erik Hansen, whose restaurant background includes stints at University Club, SURG Restaurant Group, Hinterland, Shully’s Cuisine and many others.
A few starters from the menu: oysters Rockefeller, lazy Susan (with truffle deviled eggs, braunschweiger smoked trout mousse, etc.), beef tartare, and foie gras torchon. The entrées are separated into classic and modern categories. The former include steak Diane, veal Oscar, lobster de jonghe, and “everynight fish fry.” The latter range from wild boar ragu and masala confit rack of lamb to pork chop with chive spaetzle. In true supper club fashion, baked Alaska and bananas foster are among the desserts. Entrées $18-$44-plus. Reservations recommended. Daily 3-10 p.m. (1962 N. Prospect Ave., 414-509-6074).
