Neighborhoods: Northwest Side, Portage Park
Citysearch Editorial Review – After one meal at this quaint, 28-seat Northwest side retreat, your taste buds will tell you the trip to Portage Park was worth it. The bold-hued gastropub resides in the bottom of a homey two-flat, and oozes neighborhood charm. An easygoing, casually clad staff slings approachable grub to locals, who are giddy to have a nearby haunt that serves more than bar fare. Chefs utilize local ingredients to concoct American dishes such as the Maryland-style crab cake, a Kobe beef burger that’s punched up with caramelized onion and spicy aioli, and short ribs in a subtle beer braise. As for dessert, the house-made butter popcorn ice cream tastes no less intriguing than it sounds.
