I'm a big fan of the Southern. Instead of yet another hipster wine bar in Bucktown, we can have hip fried chicken!
LOVED IT! – A great addition to the Wicker Park neighborhood. Same owners as Chaise Lounge but a whole new look, vibe and menu. Keep the calorie counter at home. It is worth it!
Chef Cary Taylor personally delivered our second dish, a to-die-for Mac & Cheese, and asked our opinion on our half devoured Poutine. All we could say was OMG! Fries, cheese and gravy - CRAZY good! Our third dish, Johnny Cakes with pulled pork, equally delish. A small selection of signature cocktails, unique beers and laid back, friendly servers made this a completely positive experience. Could hang here all night as it has a comfy lodge like atmosphere and a good crowd. And ladies, certainly a few hottie employees to keep the girls a chattin.
I hope this place lasts. It is just what we need in this hood!
Love it! – Very cool. Great food. Relaxing even when it is crowded. I wish summer were longer!
Cool late – This is good for a cool bar scene. Lots of good looking guys. I went on Valentine's day with a date and the food was good but I recommend going early if you want to eat and relax before it turns into such a bar scene.
Miami in Chicago – This restaurant is highly recommended! Great wait staff, awesome ambiance, delicious food, reasonably priced, we loved it! Reservations recommended as Chaise Lounge got really busy around 8:30 p.m. Parking is $10 valet, normal for the area. Upstairs cabanas and bar look to be fun. Relaxing & hip atmosphere, we'll be back!
This bi-level resto-lounge delivers some Gold Coast glitz within spitting distance of Wicker Park's Six Corners. – In Short
The complex is lively from the street, where people party on the roof, on the patio and inside. The dining room channels hip beach resort with white chairs, black chandeliers and a striking chesterfield-upholstered wall in white vinyl. Upstairs cabanas seat at least six, mostly for bottle service. The crowd bridges the divide between neighborhoods, too; plenty of blazers and stilettos, but also skinny jeans and funky eyewear.
