Chicago >Tavern at the Park
“is a great bar in the city!”
“The employees are always friendly and it is very accommodating for groups!”
Fantastic Dining Experience. I dined here twice and Tavern At The Park has become one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is great, food, cocktails and service are excellent! Even the location is ideal. It is excellent for after work as well as an ideal location to impress others!! My friend is now making Tavern At The Park her main restaurant!!
Near Millennium Park, this American restaurant draws crowds.. The food is classic Chicago, just like the view of Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue through the soaring floor-to-ceiling windows. That suits the Loop crowd, which packs the clubby bar with its deep leather booths and the flagstone-accented dining rooms daily for lunch and after-work drinks. Mid-day, management-types rub elbows over heaping chopped salads and grilled chicken sandwiches glazed with cherry cola barbecue sauce. And after the post nine to fivers clear out, neighborhood high-rise denizens linger over more refined, often Italian-accented plates. Dishes like strawberry risotto with plump, seared sea scallops and boneless beef short ribs, luxuriating in red wine reduction, satisfy a range of tastes without pushing the envelope.
Tourists and Loop workers both favor this masculine American haunt with a dark wood interior and Millennium Park views..
Soaring windows front this flagstone-accented American eatery from the folks behind Keefer's. An off-the-clock cocktailers' dream welcomes with a sweeping, semicircular bar accented by wood trim, clubby, nail-head-trimmed stools and two-tone leather booths. At the rear, a vintage Chicago poster-adorned, wood-paneled dining room is more intimate with leather-topped tables leading to a second-floor dining space. Classics get an update at this grown-up American eatery. A mound of fried calamari with creamy chili sauce is studded with battered herbs, lemon wheels and garlic shards. Poofs of airy, breading-encased shrimp offer contrast to crisp, pepper-inflected Asian slaw with sticky-sweet mango glaze. Rotisserie-roasted prime rib with creamy horseradish is supper club-sleek; a moist, double-cut pork chop slathered with sweet, clingy cherry cola barbecue sauce invokes retro-cool.
