The Low Down


Fun Fact: Star-spotting abounds at this place. It used to be Frank Sinatra; these days, you might see the Second City performers or Bonnie Hunt, who used the restaurant as an Irish eatery in her film "Return to Me."

Where to Sit: In the summer, sit outside in the outdoor cafe and enjoy the downtown ambiance.

Parking: Side streets are permit-only parking; use valet or head to the Piper's Alley pay lot on North Avenue instead.
