Elegant presentations and ambitious creativity sets this kitchen apart. Dishes deftly balance the rustic and sophisticated at a fantastic value, as in the pretty composition of charred and lightly blanched carrots over ricotta that is tinged pink from beet juice. Grilled salmon is beautifully cooked, flaky yet crisp-skinned, and served alongside creamy potato confit and large chunks of pickled cauliflower and carrots.

Our menu features handmade pastas, locally grown produce from our own urban farm, Planted, fish and local meats inspired by Italian & French coastal cuisines. Our menu changes seasonally to highlight only the freshest ingredients available and we make all our pasta by hand, in-house.
A10’s welcoming bar is the hub of nightlife in Hyde Park with its selection of cocktails, wine and craft beer. The bar itself is an architectural showpiece, set in a historic terra cotta building with huge windows overlooking Hyde Park’s shopping district. Whether sipping a happy hour cocktail on the patio in the summertime or tucked inside on a frosty winter night, you’ll be warmly greeted and handsomely fed.
A10 is one of the best places to indulge in cocktails, on-tap cocktails, and awesome brews. Not particularly in that order.
Every Spring, Summer and Fall we have a large patio on 53rd Street for those who prefer to people watch over their cocktails and dinner.
