I’ve already blogged some recent breakfast and lunch eats in Chicago; here are a few recent dinners as well. It’s my last week in the city and it’s starting to hit me – I’m really going to miss some of these places!
Old Town Pour House:
I went to Old Town Pour House with friends before we went to Second City – I would say it’s a perfect spot to grab a meal or drinks before the show. I had a cherry beer that tasted a lot like cherries and only a little like beer, making it a clear winner in my book (I’m not such a fan of beer). We also had mini pretzel bites and an interesting cheese plate – some really great flavors, and a few odd ones.

I’ve visited Bar Toma twice but only have one set of (not so great) pictures. Bar Toma has an interesting selection of appetizers (including black licorice potato chips – not my thing), but where they really succeed is their diverse selection of pizzas. Pictured above is my Spaniard pizza (chorizo, cilantro, and cheese), but I also really enjoyed the Gamberi pizza (shrimp and pesto) that I had at another visit.
The Details: Bar Toma | 110 East Pearson St., Chicago, IL 60611 | 312.266.3110
