Has anyone else noticed that bars & restos like using hues in their names? Nope? Well, you will now.
A kitschy pub that's steeped in history. Love this spot for happy hour. Food is a-okay and crowd is non-douchey.
The quintessential Chicago jazz spot remains virtually unchanged from its early days. A very, very mixed crowd fills the room. You'll pay an admission charge, but drinks are inexpensive.
Still cocktails, a relaxed crowd, and some of the best chili I've tasted in Chicago. Typically less frattastic than a lot of the neighboring bars.
Solid pick for both breakfast & lunch. Tasty coffee and muffins (pumpkin is tops!). Sandwiches are giant & well-priced: Try the New Veggie.
Can't get in to Big Star or Violet Hour? This is a pretty great consolation prize. Work your way down the martini list.
Can't beat it on a summer afternoon. Weekday happy hour a is draw, as is street side lunchtime seating. Try the hefty salads or a burger.
Sandwiches rule the menu, & the best are the tender pork and the BLAST, a spruced up BLT. Make sure to wash it all down w/ an oatmeal shake...and don't forget it's cash only.
Intimate, highly dateworthy spot w/ vino aplenty & decent nibbles (get the yummy burger if ur ravenous). Staff & clientele can sport a 'tude
Hands down, the best spot to dine on Michigan Ave. Snag a spot outside, let the server guide your wine choice, and save room for soft serve
Can't contain my love for the dreamiest gelato on earth. Best ingred's & inventive flaves (esp Mexican choc & banana fudge) ever. Cash only.
You can't beat the charming outdoor space here. Small plates (mmm....poutine!) are mostly well-executed and cocktails are fab.
