CHICAGO, May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Chef Laurent Gras and Richard Melman, Chairman of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises(R), have teamed up to open L2O (pronounced el-two-oh), a modern seafood restaurant in an historic building in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago.
At L2O Gras enriches his culinary perspective and French training by drawing from global cuisine and a repertoire of modern and traditional cooking techniques.
A dining experience at L2O ranges from the lounge's alluring atmosphere where guests order from an a la carte menu, to an evening in the elegant dining room where both a four-course prix-fixe menu and tasting menus are offered.
