Split Rail is a modern gastropub in Humboldt Park, and it feels a bit like an updated version of Longman & Eagle. The menu has everything from a fancy potato salad to a dish called “Fajitas, Reimagined” that involves red pepper gelee. Normally when menu items sound like headlines of an Onion article, it’s a bad sign, but luckily Split Rail pulls through in a big way. In addition to the great food, this is a relaxed, low-key place that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and we like it a lot.
