Coffee & Treats in Fulton River District

Fashioned out of an old speakeasy, Paramount Room still exudes the weary cool of its jazz age predecessor. However, chef Stephen Dunne also keeps his kitchen refreshingly with the times, crafting a menu of pub-inspired seasonal eats that earned the restaurant a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand rating and the praise of local gourmands at Chicago Magazine, Centerstage, and Daily Candy. Small plates of chilled oysters and steak tartare encourage socialable sharing, and entrees of cider-braised lamb shank, buttermilk fried chicken, and a bacon-wrapped filet embody new twists on old favorites. True to its origins, Paramount Room also houses a top-notch bar, where resident beverage manager Jacquie Armanetti and her team preside over a tap list of ever-rotating craft beers, suggest pairings from an extensive wine list and sling cocktails inspired by both Prohibition favorites and more modern mixology.

Waffles might be their only offering, but Wâfel is anything but a formal restaurant. Instead, it's a counter-service café, serving steamy beverages from its full coffee bar and selling virtually nothing that requires a knife and fork to eat. Instead, each of their waffles are "fold and go"; that is, sandwiched firmly around their ingredients so every selection only requires two hands to devour. The waffle artisans craft sweet and savory sandwiches from traditional Brussels waffles, which are leavened with yeast for a puffier, airier consistency than the standard American waffle. The recipe might be traditional, but what fills these sandwiches is anything but—selections run the gamut from scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheddar to fried chicken and maple syrup to The Elvis, a blend of bacon, peanut butter, banana, and honey. For a more dessert-like treat, try a Liège waffle. This style, also puffed up with yeast, is thicker and doughier than its Brussels brethren, and contains imported Belgian pearl sugar that caramelizes on the waffle iron to form a crispy exterior that contrasts with the soft interior, much like a sunbathing marshmallow Peep. These waffles are delicious on their own, or dipped in a rotating menu of sauces such as apple-cinnamon cream cheese, jam, and––of course––Belgian chocolate.

Traditional American cuisine combines with an avant garde attitude at Blackbird. There are no low-fat options here, though, so save a few extra calories for your next visit. You'll find a wonderful selection of drinks from Blackbird's full bar to top off your meal. Little ones are just as welcome as their parents at Blackbird. Blackbird easily accommodates large groups — there's even a reserved room available for those extra special occasions. Bask in the sun (or moon!) light when you dine on Blackbird's outdoor patio. Don't get stuck waiting for a table — the restaurant accepts reservations. Feed the gang at your next get-together with catering from Blackbird as well. Street parking is easy to find near the restaurant. Or, if you don't want to circle the block, valet parking is also available. Hop on public transit if driving's not your speed; Clinton-Green (Green, Pink) is an accessible stop. Prices are a bit on the higher side, so this might be a good pick for a special night out.
