Starters such as mac-n-cheese bites kick off the menu by oozing five cheeses or a medley of cheese, jalapeños, and bacon ($7). John's homemade soup of the day ($3.95–$6.95) keeps tummies warm, and salads blend crisp lettuce with steak, salmon, or veggies ($5–$14). Flour, spinach, or tomato tortillas swaddle basil-thyme chicken, roasted sweet red-bell peppers, and goat cheese in the Taylor Street wrap ($9), while buns hug a blend of local Black Angus, sirloin, short rib, chuck, and brisket from Slagel Family Farms ($10–$13).
Blue Frog's Local 22
Blue Frog's Local 22 appeals to the locavore quadrant of taste buds by partnering with local, self-sustained farmers and butchers and serving a lengthy list of Midwestern bottled and draft brews. The bar adds a Chicago spin to its signature burgers with options such as the Pilsen Pride and the Loop, all founded upon hormone-free Angus beef. Inside the bar, ample seating and flat-screen TVs abound for toasting hometown teams, and quotes from Chicagoans such as Al Capone and Bill Veeck line the walls. During Chicago's warmer months, a sidewalk patio opens, allowing diners to watch the people and cyborgs disguised as people walking by on Hubbard Street.
