You’re not a true Chicagoan until you’ve been to at least one wedding or reception here. It’s one of Chicago’s most popular brew pubs, and for good reason - both the beer and the food are fantastic. You can get bacon-fat popcorn, burgers, and pizzas from a rotating list of creative options (like pulled pork or Italian beef). Drink-wise, there’s something for every type of beer drinker. They don’t take reservations, and it’s always crowded, so expect a wait if you come here with a large group. Unless it’s your wedding - you can make a reservation for that.

Gilt Bar is the rare River North spot that’s easy to get into, and also has great food. Prepare for a lot of meat, butter, and salt.
The Kennison, in the Hotel Lincoln near Lincoln Park, is pretty disappointing, with food that’s bland and overpriced.
We wanted to hate it, but we can’t. RPM Steak can hang with the Chicago steakhouse classics any day.
