French restaurant — catering — special events

In the heart of Hyde Park, la petite folie offers classically prepared French food, an all-French wine list, and distinctive catering services for private and corporate events.

Menus are designed to bring you classical French food prepared to reflect the changing seasons. They use the freshest and the best ingredients available to the Chicago markets. Their dishes are composed with the skill, attention to detail and careful blending of flavors that are the hallmarks of French cuisine. They prepare all of their sauces in their kitchen, tending long-simmering stocks made from bones and vegetables in the classic tradition of French-trained chefs around the world.
