Where To Eat, Drink and Sleep in Chicago
Chef-owner Brendan Sodikoff brings French Laundry training to this swank saloon, where he serves roasted pork meatballs with white grits and other haute snacks. The bar offers esoteric wines like Irsai Olivér (a crisp Hungarian white) and classic cocktails from consultant Paul McGee of the Whistler, including the Death's Door Daisy made with Wisconsin-produced Death's Door vodka.
