The Low Down
Parking: The restaurant validates for parking at the nearby garage at Rush and Wabash.
When to Go: For lunch, call ahead and arrive before noon to avoid long waits. The wait at dinner is less of a hassle, as there's plenty of room at the bar.
Where to Sit: Window tables have a great view of the Mag Mile below; for a more intimate ambience, request a booth.
The Extras: Bandera features a jazz trio nightly 6pm-10pm (weekends 7pm-10pm).
