About Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails: Named for the mystical blue lights that float above the bayous in Louisiana, Fifolet offers guests a memorable yet casual dining experience, vibrant bar scene and authentic taste of Southern culture – all under one roof.  Executive Chef Kevin Crouse (formerly of Nouveau Tavern, the Mid-America Club and Fairways) has created a menu that combines classic Cajun and Creole flavors with unique preparations and unexpected ingredients.  Crouse isn’t the only cook in the kitchen, however: Corey Gillom has joined Fifolet as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine.  Gillom, who was named “Chicago’s Best Up & Coming Chef” by Chicago Reader in 2013, previously held culinary positions with Longman & Eagle, Rodan and American Cut Steakhouse in New York, where he worked under Top Chef alum Marc Forgione.
The walls of the 60-seat restaurant are covered with an eclectic collection of paintings and Mardi Gras masks, all of which were created by New Orleans artists.  A large fireplace surrounded by bookshelves makes the front room of Fifolet especially inviting on cold winter nights.  The large centrally-located bar has ample seating, making it ideal for those who want to grab a drink with friends, unwind with colleagues after a long day or enjoy a nightcap with their significant other.
 Fifolet accepts reservations for parties of all sizes and walk-ins are always welcome.  The restaurant & bar is open Monday – Friday from 5:00 pm – 2:00 am, Saturday – Sunday from 3:00 pm – 2:00 am.  For more information, please visit www.fifoletcajun or call 773-384-6886.
