DETAILS
From Longman & Eagle chef Jared Wentworth, Pilsen hot spot Dusek's Board and Beer serves hearty contemporary fare that has included seared Spanish mackerel, lobster pot pie, crispy pork shank, and wood-roasted skirt steak. Full bar. Serving dinner until late night daily. Sat-Sun brunch 9 am-3 pm. "... Dusek's is its own creature. The beverage program focuses on two dozen craft beers on draft (as opposed to Longman's deep whiskey bank), and there is a significant seafood orientation, beginning with a half-dozen varieties of not always expertly shucked oysters. These are redeemed by a fillet of flaky hake, half-submerged in a powerfully rich, buttery chowder that's swimming with fingerling potato coins and strips of pickled leeks. Seared, oil-rich mackerel fillets with fluffy, Parisian-style sweet potato gnocchi are arranged among carefully crosshatched chanterelle mushrooms and tiny diced pickled golden beets, lending an upscale note to the proceedings.
