Bars that serve good food are a wonderful thing, and that’s why we really like Tricycle in Wicker Park. This spot definitely feels more like a Chicago bar than a restaurant, mainly because the bar itself dominates the space. But it also has a long food menu with a wide range of options that taste really good. You’ll find bacon-wrapped dates, roasted cauliflower with a fantastic curry sauce, and a deconstructed chicken pot pie. In other words, this place is a good reason to hit up a neighborhood bar for dinner.
