  • After 7pm enter thru the Rush Street entrance. You'll get to walk thru the store when it's closed, it's a cool experience.
  • If you sit at the bar and have a drink the bartender might give you a free appetizer of pommes frites (which are delicious).
  • The frites are not frites. They are steak fries. Bummer.
  • Kale salad and Goose martini!
  • Go later and you walk through the store after close, good cocktails, decent new American Italian menu. Fire was cozy and romantic.
  • Bartender Clarence is the BEST!
  • $15 pre-fixe brunch includes your entree (choose from omelets and pancakes to burger and sandwiches) plus coffee and a bloody mary or mimosa. Great little neighborhood spot. Cozy digs and yummy food.
  • Try the Madison Ave. salad...over 17 ingredients incl. delicious chopped tuna...
  • The Belgian Fries are a must, especially with the sauces :)
  • try the dirty martini....better the Trump martini at R-Bar
  • Be sure to have cocktails at the bar when Clarence is bartending
  • Outdoor terrace is a must when dining in the spring/summer. Wonderful for ladies lunch or cocktails.
  • You can eat plant-based here if youre a vegan. Great vegetarian options too. The mushroom pizza without the cheese was amazing. Love this place. One of the best spots in Chicago.
  • My jumbo crab cakes...very underwhelming.
  • Everything is fresh!
  • Great for lunch or brunch. I'm a fan of all of their salads.
  • Been here multiple times, just the first time I checked in. Great place, great service and good food.
  • Free fries from Clarence at the bar.
  • A nice outdoor patio on the 6th floor. Great views, food and service!
  • Clarence is hands down the best bartender ever. Try the Plasmatic!
