Additionally, Taxim's housemade yogurt with young favas and lamb confit was selected as one of the Best Bites of 2009 by the Chicago Reader, the house-cured sardines were mentioned in Time Out Chicago's 2009 '100 Best Things We Ate (and drank) This Year' feature, and the wood-grilled octopus was selected as 2010's 'Best New Dish' by Chicago magazine.
