Blue 60’s chefs pull out a game-winning menu of classic pub fare as sports fans genuflect to photos of legendary Chicago athletes or catch games on tableside TVs. Diners can rally chomping muscles with invigorating appetizers such as the Cactus League nachos ($7.60), which pile drive a heap of tortilla chips with a mountain of jalapeños, tomatoes, cheddar and jack cheese. Fingers and thumbs put the squeeze on half-pound Angus burgers, including the bacon-covered Stuffed Blue 60 burger ($9.60) that pleasantly surprises taste buds with blue cheese hiding inside a stuffed patty, and bacon that tastes exactly like delicious bacon.
Beer flights wash down savory flavors with froth-topped selections from Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and Blue Moon. Sixteen flat-screen televisions equipped with NFL Sunday Ticket, hockey, and college-football packages pepper the lively dining room, momentarily distracting eyes from begging for table scraps and casting a flickering glow on the sports-themed artwork designed by the same firm that outfitted much of Miller Park.
Murals of Chicago sports legends surround Blue 60's bar and dining area, joining flat-screen televisions that act as windows to a world of huffing linebackers and fire-eyed pitchers. While safely perched at bar stools and pub tables, diners can watch the modern gladiators compete during contests including hockey games, college basketball match-ups, and the NFL’s off-season Shakespeare in the Park productions. Blue 60's kitchen staff fires stuffed burgers, stone-baked pizzas, and specialty sandwiches to accentuate each game while also bringing out the flavors in the beers that grace the bar’s tap list.
