Hearth will open its doors in Evanston on Tuesday, November 17. This new restaurant, located inside The Homestead Hotel, will occupy the space formerly held by Quince and Trio. The inviting eatery will welcome guests for casual, contemporary cuisine set in a warm and lively atmosphere. Executive Chef John "Woody" Linton's dinner menu features small plates (steak tartare; crispy crab cake; duck jambalaya), big plates (potato crusted salmon; chicken roulade; short rib; veggie ramen), sides (spaetzle; wild mushroom ragout; artichoke gratin), dairy land (Humbolt Fog; Nancy's Hudson Valley Camembert; Point Reyes Bay Blue) and dessert (warm pecan tart; quince Napoleon; peanut butter parfait).

Hearth's beverage program, led by Ryan Scheler, is comprised of both classic and modern cocktails (Sazerac; Southside; Raconteur; London Fog), local craft beer (Finch's; Metropolitan; Tyranena; Off Color) and over 40 wine selections by the glass and bottle.

The 70 seat dining room boasts rustic and earth tone decor elements, including maple tables, banquette seating, iron and glass fixtures, whitewashed wood paneling, and a wood-burning brick fireplace. The Lounge, located adjacent to the restaurant, features an additional fireplace, dark wood bar and cozy leather club chairs.

Hearth offers a variety of options for private gatherings: the elegant and intimate Library (seats 14); the Terrace "garden room" (seats 24); the sunken living room Lounge (30 seated/50 reception); and the main dining room (seats 50). Hearth's spacious front porch will be available for alfresco events, in season.

Hearth will be open Tuesday-Thursday, 4-9:30 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 4-10 p.m. and Sunday, 4-9:30 p.m.
