Laid-back Humboldt Park wine and beer bar with gourmet food..
Burgeoning Humboldt Park needed a chic, unpretentious gathering spot, and one visit to this relaxed spot confirms that the young, tattooed neighbors have embraced it with a passion they've reserved for their very own foodie hang. Communal tables with mis-matched chairs and walls adorned with local art set the scene to peruse the epic beverage list, which provides lovingly written tasting notes on each small-producer wine and craft brew. The savvy staff is happy to suggest a pairing to complement eats from the well-edited menu. Beyond cheese and charcuterie, there are snacks like beer-battered onion rings with harissa dip, plus more substantial plates like flatbreads with seasonal toppings.
