A buncha worth-your-time, red line-adjacent spots.
One of the top beer geek destinations in the city is also home to some surprisingly good BBQ. Stop by for trivia night!
Good pick for after work bubbly or cocktails w/o the Michigan Ave zaniness. Head downstairs to Watershed for an even better scene.
Although it feels chain-y, there's something for everyone to love. Staff is great. Ditto the thin crust 'za & salads. Stick w/ the basics.
A fab spot to cleanse what ales ya. Smoothies are uber-tasty (try the Rastafarian Breakfast). Also juice cleanse options & raw foods galore.
My favorite healthy snack stop! Staff is awesome, and frozen kefir (even healthier than froyo!) is fab. Try the blood orange flavor w/ mochi
Super chef Graham Elliot goes casual. Go for the sandwiches (obviously!)--the grilled cheese is the richest of the rich--but don't overlook the tasty salads. And soft serve is a must-try.
I love this location for its airy, multi-level space. They do breakfast (with Intelligentsia coffee!) too.
