Sweetwater Tavern and Grille
Perched on Michigan Avenue, Sweetwater Tavern and Grille's expansive windows draw diners into a cozy interior lined with exposed brick, high ceilings, and deep leather booths. More than 70 craft-brewed beers lubricate social interactions, including local favorites such as Goose Island, Two Brothers, and Al Capone's Empty Safe. Sweetwater's menu of upscale tavern fare includes salads, sandwiches, and entrees, including what CBS named one of Chicago's Best Build-Your-Own Burgers in 2010, made with 100 percent sustainable Niman Ranch beef. On Saturdays and Sundays, servers dish out a delectable brunch menu, which includes a bloody mary bar and tasty twists on traditional favorites. Twenty-three flat-screen televisions captivate observers, and an outdoor patio in spring and summer enable the wait staff to thank diners with impromptu victory pyramids.
