OVIE Bar & Grill
The phrase "train-station bar" probably doesn't conjure the fanciest images. But OVIE isn't some subterranean dive. It's a sharp, modern dining destination that just happens to be located in the Ogilvie Metra station, where flatscreen TVs encircle an industrial bar framed by steel beams and exposed ceilings. The dining lounge is well-dressed, too, with white-leather couches and banquettes backed up to brick walls and a mural of the Chicago skyline. The menus match the upscale-pub vibe, with specialty dishes such as rosemary-scented french fries and applewood-smoked wings. The full entrees, meanwhile, showcase a deft handling of flavors—a sautéed tilapia filet is dressed with citrus relish and caper-butter sauce, and Angus filet mignon teams up with wild-mushroom compote and cabernet demi-glace. Sophistication also colors the drink list, thanks to craft cocktails and beers, as well as wines from the U.S. and Europe.
