Grassroots (fka Deleece)

Grassroots is a new neighborhood eatery featuring simple, yet delicious farm to table comfort food, in a warm, inviting atmosphere adjacent to the Mercury Theater and just four doors north of the Music Box Theatre. Our new chef, Bob Bagley, came to us from Sola, where he was Chef de Cuisine for several years. Bob has a love of comfort food redesigned which makes him the perfect fit for Grassroots.

We serve dinner every night, lunch Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and brunch Saturday and Sunday.

"Unfortunately the new concept is nothing to go out of your way for. Service was extremely slow and inattentive. The pizza was bland and too doughy. Vegetarian options are minimal. We were looking forward to a wonderful meal but left disappointed."

"We went for lunch on a weekday. It was quiet but I think that will change as the weather gets warmer and more people know about it. I'm glad the menu is more casual than when it was Deleece. Want to try their brunch and dinner menu soon."

"Friendly and helpful staff. Our food was very tasty although we were disappointed that they ran out of our first choice. The ambiance is a little cold, but overall it was a convenient place to go after the music box theater."

"Grassroots has the menu in "5", five starters, small plates, entrees, salads, pizza, entrees and desserts. The emphasis on budget friendly choices with the addition of pizza and good sandwiches are notable. Deleece always had a limited but outstanding entree list, and it feels less important with the new format. The server definitely had less of a foodie lover presentation, did no 'upselling' or detailed explanation without prompting, and I missed the bread and herbed butter service that comes with a 'dining' experience. It was more of a special occasion place, and now less so, a meal out. Filling the tables is the name of the game, so Grassroots is off to a good start for a hearty business plan and success. Peanut butter ice cream? YES!"

"Will definitely return. Have eaten both inside and outside and enjoyed both. Very pleasant atmosphere. Being next to the Music Box movie theater is a big plus. Movie & dinner make for an enjoyable evening. Had mussels and steak & frites, and they were both very good. Service was efficient and pleasant. Prices were reasonable. My only reservation was that I found the menu for dinner's "big plates" to be a little limited."

"We enjoyed Christmas dinner at DeLeece, where they offered a three-course fixed price dinner. For Chicago, the price was reasonable for Christmas day, $42. The first courses were a butternut squash soup, which was OK and a salad which was delicious. The entrees were turkey, beef, vegetarian risotto or mahi mahi. The star was the mahi mahi. The beef was tasty but not very tender, served with a delicious horseradish cream. Sides were cranberry sauce (outstanding), mashed potatoes, cubes of sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and stuffing, all of which were served family style and were very good. No bread was offered with the meal. Our desert choices were buche de noel and a pear tart and both were delicous. I would return to DeLeece."

"It was totally awesome that Deleece was open Christmas Day. My sister is disabled and living in a nursing home & doesn't get out at all so to have the opportunity to dine at a quality eatery was a real treat for her and me.
The staff was very pleasant but not very attentive to detail. Like the sides were served family style but were not delivered with the protein. After waiting a minute we had to flag down the waiter and he brought the sides out promptly but forgot the serving utensils. Oh well, I attributed it to the holiday. I mean, who wants to work on Christmas anyway?
The food itself was excellent. It was a set 3 course menu and everything was delicious. I really enjoyed the butternut squash soup and my sister's watercress salad. With her disability it was too difficult to eat and even I had to use my finger to get the food on the fork but it was tasty, yum. I enjoyed the roasted brussels sprouts side but my sister did not. They were a little bitter. The flavor profile was a bit of a mismatch with the other sides but like I say, I thought they were prepared well. Maybe they were better suited for one of the other proteins.
We had the Turkey which was all white meat with gravy and prepared well, moist & succulent. The sweet potatoes were average but the mashed potatoes were very good and the stuffing & cranberry relish were awesome. We were fighting each other off to get the last bites.
For desert my sister had the cheese cake and thought it was the best she ever had. Before her accident she was a world traveler and has pretty good culinary tastes and that little stinker wouldn't give me a bite so it must have been good. I had the Bouchée Noel, thinking it would be small, just a mouthful, a bouchée. It was huge and delicious. I shouldn't have eaten the whole thing but I couldn't help myself.
All in all it was a great experience and I heartily recommend Deleece."
