  • The Point
    Toeing the line between corner bar and gourmet grill, The Point serves old-fashioned comfort food alongside vegan and gluten-free fare. The eclectic menu matches the decor, which effortlessly blends exposed brick and timeworn racing photos with sleek chrome light fixtures and sentient bar stools. Diners can plumb new depths with intriguing menu items such as the crab cake with caper remoulade, the vegan mushroom broth risotto, and the tilapia ceviche with orange and lime. Or they can rely on old standards such as the Point burger with cheddar and bacon or the chicken wings, which come in chipotle barbecue or gorgonzola-bacon. It's not all rib-sticking entrees, either. In her glowing review, the Chicago Reader's Julia Thiel praised the lineup of libations as well, saying, "The drinks menu is just as impressive as the food, offering a dozen beers on tap... another 20-odd in bottles and cans, plus a dozen wines by the glass, the same number of cocktails, and a good selection of spirits, particularly whiskey and tequila."

  • Porkchop
    In a space reminiscent of an eclectic country roadhouse, Porkchop's chefs grill pork chops and veggies, smoke chicken, and pour shots of bourbon into iced drinks for a menu of gourmet comfort food. The barbecue masters grill their classic pork chops over charcoal embedded with whiskey barrels and smoke wings in special spices before frying and grilling them. Personal ice buckets filled with discarded ice sculptures accompany more than 40 whiskeys, served neat, to the tables inside the dining room or out on the patio during warmer weather. The chefs work amid quirky décor, such as a hanging lantern made from mason jars, a dangling row of saws, and a portrait of Paul Bunyan's first rack of ribs.

  • Burger Joint Chicago Bar and Grill
    In The Hangover, a few dissimilar characters discover that they work best as a team. That's not the plot of a blockbuster film?it's a summary of the ingredients in one of Burger Joint's signature creations: a patty topped in bacon, fried egg, and the usual cohorts of tomato and american cheese. The rest of Burger Joint's half-pound burgers echo this pairing of playful names and playful toppings. For example, the Crazy Greek stacks feta and gyro meat on top of a cheeseburger, while a Hot Mess covers burgers in chili, onions, and cheddar. Bun, burger, toppings?the chefs perform this dance well into the evening. Burger Joint's team also cooks more traditional burgers and gyros, and they hand cut regular and sweet potatoes for their signature fries. Their prompt turnaround makes the Burger Joint an ideal carryout spot, though the restaurant's decor isn't an afterthought. Each location features local photography, HDTVs, and tables and stools made from reclaimed wood.
