This is not a destination restaurant - you should really only come here because you’re looking for something close by and really easy in the neighborhood (it’s right nearby The Second City). But this spot has its perks, including the people-watching (imagine a crowd from Wrigleyville but wearing button downs, cheap tube dresses, and the occasional sweatpant). It’s good for groups, and the elevated bar food is just fine. Hit it up after the show, when you feel like a burger and some cheese curds and don’t mind being surrounded by a cloud of cologne and bad decisions.
