Chez Leon closed this Spring, and I'm not surprised. The food had become very disappointing to mediocre at best.

Hands down one of the best French restaurants you can go to. As far as French goes, this is a great place for a good price. That does not mean it's cheap, but it's a deal compared to Chicago. The escargot is the second best...More
