Chicago: Best Places to Eat & Drink
Our Review ByANTONIO BASADA First impression?
It’s a tight fit inside, so try to snag a seat on the patio overlooking the Park at Wrigley, the newly-designed plaza located in the shadow of historic Wrigley Field. Cool. So who’s there?
Cubs fans and beer drinkers who appreciate decidedly more modern digs than you find at most Wrigleyville dives. On game days, the single TV is always tuned to baseball. How are the drinks?
Custom beers made specifically for the bar by local outfits like Burnt City, Dovetail, Right Bee Cider, and Maplewood. Easy-sipping draft cocktails are crafted by Lucky Dorr’s sister bar, Billy Sunday. Worth ordering something to eat, too?
Nothing substantial, but the snack game is on point, with super soft giant pretzels, barbecue pork rinds, and other beer-friendly, ballpark-worthy food. Did the staff do you right?
Quick, efficient service in a place that can get crazy busy. Wrap it up: what are we coming here for?
Worth a stop before or after a Cubs game for the custom brews.
