And that you want your high note to include some cola-braised carnitas tacos.
Now let’s stop all this assuming business and direct you to City Social Kitchen & Bar.
It’s a comely new tavern in the Loop where you and some other people can unwind over draft beers and a former GT Fish & Oyster chef’s worldly brand of bar food. It’s open now, and this is what it looks like.
The people behind this rather lengthy drinking den—which houses a half-block-long marble bar, ample booths and an open kitchen—are also behind nearby taverns Jackson, Randolph and Madison. You could say they’re well versed in the art of post-work leisure.
So on any given evening not unlike this one, you’ll position yourself at that bar and request a beer or reserve-rum-and-sherry libation. For a snack, maybe go with the quail egg steak tartare or some ahi tuna poke. If you’re in the mood for something heavier, there’s always the chorizo poutine doused with Tabasco gravy.
