In a plain-Jane office building in suburban Western Springs, star chef Paul Virant plays with Western European flavors in an semi-industrial setting—concrete floors, brushed aluminum chairs, silk banquettes. Virant tops crispy veal sweetbreads with green tomato sauce and honey roasted rapini and plates local sugar snap peas with pretzels and kale. Desserts come with a glass of wine, a nod to Vie’s distinction as the town’s first restaurant with a liquor license since Prohibition.
