Ada Street: A User's Guide
Upscale Bar Bites | Craft Cocktails | Funky Industrial Space | Backyard Patio | Open Kitchen
- Snack: polenta fries with chipotle purée
- Entree: seared octopus with cannellini beans and tabasco mash
- Dessert: pretzel-bread pudding with maple whipped cream
- Drink: bourbon smash with Buffalo Trace, lemon, rosemary, and mint
The Vibe: Guests journey through a renovated elevator shaft, down a wooden corridor, and past a wine library protected by a mesh screen before even arriving in Ada Street’s dining room. Once there, they’ll be seated at boxy wooden banquettes, matching two-tops, or the long, mirror-backed bar. Seats near the open kitchen provide sneak peeks at the meal to come.
Where to Sit: During warmer months, the backyard-like patio—replete with faux grass, picnic tables, and a fire pit—is the place to be.
While You're Waiting
- Pick out a vinyl from the house’s eclectic record collection—stocked with everything from Earth, Wind & Fire to Florence and the Machine—and hand it to the DJ to play.
- Work up an appetite with a few rounds of ping-pong on the patio’s table.
While You're in the Neighborhood
Before: Stock up on spy gear at The Boring Store (1331 N. Milwaukee Avenue) to benefit the tutoring group 826CHI.
After: Pop into The Hideout (1354 W. Wabansia Avenue) to see what indie concert or DJ-fueled dance party is in store for the evening.
If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Stop by another one of DMK’s acclaimed restaurants, such as Country Barbeque (1352 W. Taylor Street), which spotlights American whiskies and slow-cooked meats from the country’s best barbecue regions.
