Unbridled at Untitled
DISH: WEEKLY DINING GUIDE

Untitled (111 W. Kinzie St.; untitledchicago.com ) has a lot going on, including Soul Brunch Sundays (which I'll certainly have to try one day). However, on a recent Thursday, my (and my guest's) attention were attuned to an event that was strictly "after-dark."

At about 10:30 on Thursday evenings, "Unbridled" takes over—and it's a show AND an attitude.

Before the show starts, one might want to order some food and a couple drinks. Among the many options are charcuterie (including wild boar salami as well rabbit-and-foie gras terrine), crispy squash blossoms (a favorite that handsome and friendly server Adam recommended), pork belly biscuits, oysters Rockefeller (complete with bacon bread crumbs and spinach fondue) and marinated olives with almonds. In addition, this place is certainly not lacking in drinks, and both of us thoroughly enjoyed what we ordered—including my Moscow mule.

The show (which the sultry Siren Jinx hosts) has been described as "freaky," but I don't think of strange—however, it's fun, titillating and even thought-provoking in spots. Attendees see mostly female contortionists, fire-dancers, burlesque dancers and even a performer who uses an electric sander to create sparks. In between acts (it's about a two-hour show), a few women select people from the audience to dance with them to uptempo songs that included Azealia Banks' "1991" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" the night we attended. Interestingly, as the night went on, the dynamic seemed to change as the acts seemingly became the intermissions to people dancing—not a complaint but an observation.

Maybe with everything that's happening, Untitled—which prides itself on its speakeasy-type feel—will make itself more conspicuous. I know that would be contrary to what it's established, but people will certainly like what's going on there. "Unbridled" is a very welcome assault on the senses.
