In a spacious and bustling loft space, Piece's doughsmiths twirl crispy New Haven–style thin-crust pizzas to pair with house-crafted microbrews. A triad of pizza bases—red, white, and mozzarella-free plain—balance premium ingredients better than Italy's top runway models, with toppings that include mashed potatoes, clams, and ricotta cheese. Led by brewmaster Jonathan Cutler, Piece concocts award-winning beers, such as the rye-based Worryin Ale or the Top Heavy Hefeweizen, in gleaming silver vats next door to the dining room. Parties can intersperse crispy bites with raucous cheers as they watch one of 11 46-inch plasma TVs, which punctuate the walls with the soft glow of sports games or documentaries about uranium. Amateur vocal cords strut their stuff during standard karaoke on Thursday nights, as well as live-band karaoke on Saturday nights.

Michael Dorf stood with his brother Josh, smiling over the barrel filled with wine from grapes they'd just crushed, fermented, and pressed. He claims that despite tastings and classes, he'd never begun to understand wine until this moment. As his understanding grew, he laid the foundations for City Winery: a full winery facility, restaurant, and concert venue inside urban Chicago. He now watches over more than 400 international wines and 20 house wines. Inside the winery, these wines—made from nine US and international varietals—age inside stainless steel tanks and American and French oak barrels. Here, staffers lead winemaking classes, letting visitors join the crushing and fermenting process, and showing them how make private barrels and fill custom juice boxes or bottles pasted with labels of their own design. These monolithic tanks and barrels can be seen through floor-to-ceiling windows from most of the restaurant's rooms, where servers ferry Executive Chef Andres Barrera's dishes, each a blend of Italian, French, Spanish, and Middle-Eastern flavors. The culinary team crafts small and large plates of artisanal cheeses, seafood, and flatbreads—which they make using the winery's own wine lees as yeast. In the restaurant and Barrel Room tasting bar, staffers pour housemade wines piped fresh from the cellar through 14 taps, while visitors bask in the glow from hard wood and floor to ceiling windows. Patrons dine on a ground floor lit by soft blue lights and hanging lamps fashioned from old wine bottles, as well as a mezzanine level looking out on the city skyline. Private dining rooms gather guests around long communal tables, stretched between exposed brick walls. In the show venue, comedians, live musicians, and slapstick-prone stage crew members entertain audiences under the glow of tabletop candles.

After launching in early 2011 with just two beers on its menu, Finch's Beer Company has expanded into a full craft brewery. At the Chicago-based facility, seasoned brewmasters blend high-quality ingredients, such as American hops and flavored malts, into a core lineup of five beers. These include the Fascist Pig, a dry-hopped American red ale brewed with caramel malts, the Threadless IPA, a hoppy concoction devised in collaboration with the local design company, and the formidable Secret Stache Stout, which is a subtly sweet fusion of vanilla beans and chocolate malt. Though they're available in cans at bars throughout the city, these brews also flow freely on regularly scheduled brewery tours. Each guided visit introduces guests to the equipment and brewing process, including the part where the brewers milk the hops from the pink elephants.

Cooper’s Hawk Naturally, the chefs at Cooper’s Hawk have a sharp eye when it comes to wine pairings. Each of the restaurant’s contemporary dishes is crafted with a particular wine in mind, which makes plenty of sense given the fact that there’s a winery located just next door. Surrounded by oaken barrels and racks lined with glistening bottles, diners may be forgiven for thinking that they made a wrong turn and ended up in the winery itself. After your meal, see the real thing in the Napa–style tasting room, where you can sample up to eight different wines. The selection includes something for everyone, including graceful blush wines and cabernets whose flavors unfold like a novel scribbled on the wings of an origami crane.

To find many of the fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs that underscore their Mediterranean menu, Autre Monde Cafe & Spirits' chefs only need to walk a few steps away from the kitchen?to the restaurant's own greenhouse. Although it's hard to get more local than that, many other ingredients are sourced from Cakeridge Farms in the Ohio River Valley, owned by head chefs Dan Pancake and Beth Partridge. Both worked under James Beard Award winner Tony Mantuano in Chicago before perfecting their Mediterranean cooking and wine-bottle-juggling on Spain's Costa Brava. At Autre Monde Cafe & Spirits, Dan and Beth whip up fresh pasta, flatbreads made to order, and small plates inspired by French, Spanish, and Moroccan cuisine. A lengthy wine and spirits menu makes it easy to pair each dish with an apropos beverage, including small-batch and organic options. Diners can enjoy their meal on the restaurant's three-season patio or inside at tables crafted from fallen ash trees harvested from Cakeridge Farms.
