The menu’s appetizers of spicy tuna tartare and buffalo-style chicken wings give way to such entrees as spaghetti with meatballs and falafel burgers slathered in tart tzatziki sauce. The drink list features eight draft beers that include Guinness and Goose Island IPA, along with 10 wines by the glass ranging from an Italian pinot grigio to an Argentinian cabernet sauvignon.
Ainsworth Park’s 65 TVs broadcast the latest sports games, but the gourmet eatery is far from a typical sports bar. Nestled in the heart of Union Square, the 7,000-square-foot space mixes high and low—in both the literal sense, with a mix of low-slung couches and lofty, chandelier-dotted ceilings, and a metaphorical one. The culinary team grills premium cuts of steak, such as filet mignon and bone-in rib eye, alongside classic sports-bar fare enhanced with upscale touches. The house BLT, for example, adds a seared tuna steak to its traditional ingredients, and the grilled-cheese sandwich swaps out the standard neon-orange filling for rich gruyere and caramelized onions. The bar takes a similar approach with their array of cocktails, such as the house bloody mary, which incorporates Belvedere vodka, a splash of Texas Pete hot sauce, and a celery stalk plucked from the Monopoly man’s own garden.
