What You'll Get
Without grills, all ground beef would remain uncooked, rendering it useless except as hypoallergenic pillow stuffing. Give meat a higher purpose with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary American cuisine and drinks at Harmony Grill and Schubas Tavern in Lakeview. The culinary complement to Schubas' live tuneage, Harmony Grill focuses on Midwestern mouth-pleasers and emphasizes local and regional ingredients. Take a taste-bud-teasing visual tour of the lunch menu or dinner menu before selecting a sandwich, wrap, meal-sized salad, mac 'n' cheese, or other edible enticement. Among meaty entrees, a brisket is house-smoked before being served on a cloudy bed of garlic mashed potatoes with princess-repelling peas ($12). Harmony Grill offers a symphony of tastes to keep senses occupied before an evening show at Schubas (use this Groupon for drinks) but don't miss the weekend brunch menu, featuring unique items such as cheddar corn cakes topped with black beans, eggs, and spicy sauce ($8.75).
Metromixers give Harmony Grill a 3.8-star average. More than 100 Yelpers give the restaurant an average of 3.5 stars, Google Mappers give it four, and nine TripAdvisors give it four owl eyes on average:
- The Grill's kitchen (which also services the bar) serves up American regional comfort food such as meatloaf, pot roast or seven different types of mac and cheese. Sandwiches, salads and burgers with a bit more ambition than typical bar food round out the menu. – Metromix
- My favorite mac and cheese EVER! I recommend the mac and cheese with bacon and scallions. – Allison B., Yelp

About Schubas Harmony Grill
Over the course of its history, the brick tied house at the corner of Belmont and Southport has hosted tenants that helped shape Chicago’s personality. Originally built as a tap room by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company in 1903, the homey corner bar would later transform into Schubas Tavern, one of t he North Side’s preeminent music clubs. Nestled right next door, the Harmony Grill flaunts both its history and proximity to musical derring-do. As diners gather around tables and booths lit by intimate glass-petal hanging lamps, stained glass windows and ornate molding compete for eyes’ attention with the murals, paintings, and photographs of musicians that cover the walls.
In the kitchen, chefs preside over design menus brimming with contemporary, regional American cuisine featuring ingredients sourced from local and regional producers. Their tactics reflect this obsession with freshness; they make all soups, sauces, breads, and desserts in-house daily, ensuring that ingredients remain unspoiled and naïve enough to go into the pot willingly. All of this attention to culinary detail pays off at lunch and dinner, of course. Then, chefs accent home-style mac 'n' cheese with combinations of more than 30 toppings, and build beef or veggie burgers, traditional Cuban sandwiches, and shrimp po' boys. They also specialize in brunch, crafting sweet seasonal pancakes, Mexican-inspired egg dishes, and French toast from scratch each weekend. Barkeeps also get a chance to shine, pouring a dozen draft beers—including imports as well as local brews—and local rye whiskeys and vodka.
