“With a menu that changes seasonally, Octave offers creative fare in a kitschy setting. Currently, the restaurant features cheese, wine, honey, and an ever-changing variety of fruits and vegetables from local growers and markets, including the Chesterton European Market. Octave is known for its grass-fed beef which goes into specialty burgers, many topped with locally-sourced cheeses, such as Havarti from Fair Oaks Farms. You’ll find plenty of other options, including pulled pork and goat cheese fondue on the menu. They also serve beer from local breweries, and fresh desserts made in-house. It's about 40 minutes east, so if you're doing the Chicago scene, this is out of the way.”
