Hip tapas spot. Food is solid but a bit pricey for the experience

Reservations are recommended at this buzzy Cal-Italian spot. Awash in bright white walls and blonde wood, including a bustling bar settled into the center of the restaurant, Pacific Standard Time brings a breezy West Coast vibe to River North, and the Midwest can’t get enough. On the menu, you’ll find a refreshing mix of Neapolitan-style pizzas, homemade pastas and fish. Highlights though include the ahi tuna starter, as well as trout dressed with a Thai vinaigrette, sesame, avocado purée and dill. At the center of the kitchen are two oak wood-fueled hearths, which turn out rib-sticking items like roasted chicken and whole duck (not to mention those delicious pies). Service is personable and casual, but highly attentive to the details that count.

The food they had was quite good, but there was really only pizza for vegetarians. Step it up.

Fresh take on small plates. Warm ambience. Expected good things from former Nico Osteria chef and this did not disappoint. Perfect for a date or friends - but reservations are a must.
