Ugo’s Kitchen & Bar, Chicago IL | Merchant Profile

Ugoís Kitchen & Bar is a modern Italian eatery that specializes in delicious, creative small plates. Owner and Executive Chef, Stephen Hasson, named the restaurant after his grandfather who grew up in Naples, Italy then came to America in search for greater opportunities. He earned his PhD and became a successful businessman, so Stephen decided to name his restaurant after him in order to honor his accomplishments. One thing that sets Ugoís apart from other restaurants is the fact that they strive to support local businesses by sourcing locally grown and seasonal ingredients. The menu at Ugoís changes seasonally to accommodate the local ingredients available during that time. Everything is made from scratch on-site using the highest quality products. The Spaghetti Carbonara is a fan favorite that is made with pancetta, thyme, and black pepper. The Lasagna, vegetarian Fried Parmesan Chicharron, and Eggplant Fries are all very popular as well. All of Ugoís cuisine consists of modern and creative twists on Italian classics that are great for sharing in order to try all their different flavors and styles. In addition to the delicious cuisine, Ugoís also has a diverse selection of drinks and spirits to try. They have a complete craft cocktail program along with a great selection of wine and beer. On the bar end, Stephen still pushes to stay local so they have a nice collection of craft beers that are brewed right in Chicago. The restaurant tries to host a wine dinner monthly where they will team up with a specific vineyard and create a menu to showcase and compliment those wines. Every Wednesday is also half off bottles of wine. All in all, Ugoís is the perfect place to enjoy a nice family meal, a fun night out with friends, or an intimate dinner date.
