I ordered the chicken pot pie and while very tasty had almost no chicken. Highly recommend it if you're not hungry or on a diet.

The best restaurant in the north suburbs of Chicago. An extensive wine list that compliments an ever changing/dynamic menu, innovative appetizers and charcuterie. The atmosphere is chic and comfortable with nice spacing between tables. Live music on weekends is a huge plus.

Nirvana Wine & Grillerie is an original wine bar & restaurant that simply wants to share the best with people. We welcome friends into our lives through food & wine with the family owned wineries that we represent, small batch wines, and food that is as fresh and natural as possible. Nirvana has a scratch kitchen that offers artisan hand crafted cheeses, farm-raised and hormone free chicken, wild-caught seafood, all natural hand-made flatbreads, and fresh daily ingredients.
