Defined by a passion for exploring unique flavor combinations.
Wood is more than a name. Our wood-fired oven is at the heart of it all, flavoring a dynamic menu of small-plate, American-fare that is made with the best ingredients the season has to offer. Though the dishes regularly change, they are defined by a few constants: vegetables are drawn from family farms like Green Acres (North Judson, IN), Three Sisters (Kankakee, IL), and Spence Farm (Fairbury, IL); herbs are picked directly from Wood’s private garden and our humanely-raised meat is butchered in-house. All pastas and sausages are freshly made in the Wood kitchen.
