A top-5 rating from TripAdvisor.com doesn't happen overnight. Just ask Dave Samber, whose Polo Caf? and Catering Bridgeport U.S.A., a mile west of U.S. Cellular Field, currently ranks among Chicago's most popular restaurants. Since opening in 1990, the restaurant has earned a reputation as an adventurous spot where guests can feast on lamb chops and sandwiches served on warm French baguettes. On weekends, the restaurant also opens its doors early for two signature brunches: Saturday's Bloody Mary Brunch pairs horseradish-dosed bloodies with tasty takes on classics like Polo Caf? favorite Eggs Benedicto XVI and french toast, while Sunday's Gospel Brunch treats diners to a soulful serenade from singers backed by a live organ.

Samber and his dedicated staff share their delicious food served with Chicago hospitality amid the green and white diner's tin ceiling, tufted booths, polo-green tablecloths. The vintage glamour is only interrupted by framed accolades and a colorful 12-foot chalkboard created in 1986 to welcome guests to the historic Bridgeport neighborhood, home to five of Chicago's mayors. The adjacent Old Eagle Room, a repurposed theater built in 1914, accommodates up to 100 banqueters on its main and mezzanine levels. These guests enjoy entertainment from a Rodgers 360 theater organ or a 20-channel audio system after storing cars in free lighted parking lots.

Mitchell's Tap, a sports bar that ESPN writer Scoop Jackson called "the real W-Sox spot" and "legendary," aims to "celebrate every Thursday like it's Friday and every Friday like it's New Year's." Located in Bridgeport, close to U.S. Cellular Field, the spot makes a convenient watering hole for those en route to or coming from baseball games, or for players chasing far-flung home runs. Just as often, though, the bar hosts its own festivities—recurring events include chili cook-offs, White Sox-Cubs–rivalry viewing parties, and barbecues. Bartenders fill glasses with more than 110 types of beer, and are equally adept at mixing smooth Grey Goose cocktails or concocting Washington Apple shooters.
