Just around the corner from trendy Cindy's, this place had great food and a good selection of drinks/beers and at very reasonable prices. If I lived close they would know me well.

This place is a hidden gem! It's tucked away off of Michigan Avenue on Madison. There is a long bar up front and tables in the back for dining. They have an expansive menu for a bar restaurant which also offers some vegetarian dishes like...More

your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
