  • New Line Tavern
    Diners at New Line Tavern take their meals beneath framed vintage photos of trains and railroad signs as a nod to the eatery’s location within the Powerhouse building, which originally powered the Chicago and Milwaukee railways. The chefs' menu of comfort food is anything but dated and features modern gastropub staples such as burgers, sandwiches, and buffalo wings, “while a long lineup of appetizers (mini-crab cakes, queso fundido, asiago-dusted fries with garlic dipping sauce) beckons for happy hour gatherings,” as mentioned by Metromix. Bartenders serve up an array of international brews and spirits at the fully stocked bar, and out on the patio, diners settle beneath red-umbrella-covered tables that offer shade from the sun and shelter from clouds shooting spit balls.
