David and Anna Posey, a chef couple whose résumés include Blackbird and The Publican, helm this New American fine-dining spot in the West Loop, offering Danish-accented à la carte and tasting menus (with optional wine pairings) in a relaxed, airy warehouse setting with a seasonal patio featuring a food garden and a fireplace.

⭐ | A vivid blue neon sign marks the entry to stylish Elske, the hip and sophisticated offering brought to you by husband-and-wife chef duo, David and Anna Posey. He worked at Blackbird; she at The Publican—and what they do together in this restaurant (the name means “love” in Danish) is pure culinary magic. The spacious setting is equal parts minimal-cool and perfectly cozy, with concrete floors, exposed brick walls, and open ductwork. A lovely outdoor area offers an open-air campfire with two long benches and complimentary lap furs, designed for a pre- or post-dinner cocktail or two. Inside, communal tables abound and counter seats line a gleaming open kitchen, where the cooks serve dishes directly to customers. The chefs' deeply creative menu offers seasonal, responsibly sourced dishes rendered with impeccable skill—the flavors carefully woven together to produce irresistible profiles. A night in the talented duo’s hands might unveil tender duck liver tart in an ethereally light buckwheat crust or subtle-but-noteworthy poached sturgeon and creamed wax beans in a garlic-walnut sauce. Tender venison crowned with plums and sided by ricotta spätzle is spot-on bite after creamy, buttery bite.

Brought me back to my days in Copenhagen. Amazing Danish restaurant. Don’t overthink it: do the prix fixe.
