Chestnut Provisions

Chestnut Provisions is an artisanally-driven kitchen to table concept created by Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile executive chef Greg Biggers, featuring an assortment of cave aged cheeses, charcuterie, jams and preserves. Hand-crafted by Biggers and his team in the kitchens of Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile, the house made products have inspired new dishes at Café des Architectes and Le Bar, in addition to the hotel’s private dining menus and amenity program.

The philosophy behind Chestnut Provisions is simple. Biggers, already a proponent for seasonal and local ingredients, took this notion one step further by producing the best and freshest product in house, just steps from the dinner table.

While Chestnut Provisions’ offerings are largely driven by the season, diners can expect an evergreen selection of cave aged cheeses such as Brie, Chevre and Taleggio. Charcuterie offerings include Soppressata, Pepperone and Bresaola. Canned items, which are harvested in the warmer months, range from pickled banana peppers to preserved eggplant and flavored vinegars. Jams, both sweet and savory, include options such as cherry mostarda, pineapple miso and strawberry tomato and serve as the perfect accoutrement to cheese and charcuterie.
