SixtyFour - A Wine Bar
Light, imaginative fare in Naperville’s new Water Street District
When the “soft” opening of a new restaurant draws upwards of 600 diners, that’s a sign something special has come to town.
Casual-chic ambiance and fresh, bold cuisine are the forté of SixtyFour - A Wine Bar, the eagerly awaited newcomer to Naperville’s upscale dining scene. An elegantly imagined menu by Executive Chef Patrick McLaughlin is designed for pairings with 64 wines per evening, drawn from the bar’s cellars of 1,000 and served from automated WineStations. Expert sommeliers are on hand for recommendations.
Light fare and uncommon ingredients guide Chef McLaughlin’s menu, starting with cheese and charcuterie platters that feature German Cambozola and wild boar or duck salami. There’s a salad with heirloom beets, goat cheese foam and candied pecans. A scallops entrée is finessed with Nicoise olives and a parsley buerre blanc, while the Berkshire pork belly uses a thai chili glaze to marry flavors of Brussels sprouts and ginger.
Burgers, flatbreads and panini are similarly elevated, while the dessert menu offers sorbets, tarts and crème brûlée. A riverside patio expands SixtyFour’s capacity of 90 to 130.Edit Module
