As of January 2012, One Sixty Blue is closing and re-concepting.

The leek gnocchi was a delicious, but rich appetizer.

The flavors of the ravioli and sauce nearly overwhelmed the crab stuffing.

We went to One Sixty Blue to try their United Center price fix offering, and ended up picking and choosing our way through the menu. We found the atmosphere and wine to be quite good, but the rest of our experience lacked panache. Tune in to find out the details of our West side evening.
