If you’re looking for a nice-but-not-too-fancy spot to eat with your cousin who enrolled at the University of Chicago, this is it. Truth Be Told is a British-inspired restaurant on the ground floor of The Study, a campus hotel. The menu has the usual suspects, like Welsh rarebit atop slices of crusty sourdough, crispy fish and chips, and a rich chicken pot pie. The food isn’t going to wow you, but it’s good enough and the easygoing service is incredibly friendly. So if you just bombed a final, coming here for a pint and a smoked-bacon burger might make you feel a little bit better.
