The Country's Best New
Restaurant Rows (Drinks Included)
Five streets where the perfect dinner and cocktails are just steps apart.
Chicago | West Randolph Street
Girl & the Goat excels at hearty fare (escargot ravioli, braised beef tongue), while Avec takes a lighter approach with Mediterranean-influenced small plates. De Cero (translation: "from scratch") lives up to its name with hand-pressed tortillas and fresh salsa.
Decked out in subway tiles and chandeliers, Maude's Liquor Bar attracts off-duty chefs and the local glitterati with oyster platters and whiskey smashes. For a cozier nightcap, check out Haymarket Pub & Brewery's Belgian-beer list, which you can sample in 4-, 12-, 16-, and 20-ounce pours.
Bring your best vinyl to Prohibition Taproom on Sunday nights, when the proprietor-DJ will play the entire album as you sample the selection of esoteric draught beers.
