The Low Down


Know Before You Go: HB is B.Y.O.B., so grab that bottle of vino before heading down to Halsted

The Extras: Through a Food Network competition, owners Steve McDonagh and Dan Smith won their television own cooking series.

Save Money: Head to Kafka, a wine shop at Halsted and Buckingham, before going to this B.Y.O.B. spot. Many of the store's bottles are $20 or less.

Fun Fact: Former owners Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh are the stars of the Food Network show Party Line with the Hearty Boys.

The Extras: Fans of the Cupcake Flight take heart; the famed dessert trio is still on the menu.
