Al Dente, a family owned, BYOB restaurant located in a small neighborhood just northwest of downtown Chicago, is described as “contemporary American with Italian and Mexican influences”. Chef Perez uses fresh, local ingredients from the weekly farmers market down the street to influence his menu. Because of this, the design of the menus had to be easy to edit and be able to be printed onsite. We wanted to keep the overall brand design simple, modern, yet still have that family-owned, local neighborhood feel.
