The Low Down
On the Menu: Gussied up Anglo-American bar food is the charge here. Filets get crusted with Earl Grey tea and steamed mussels are finished with curry and ale. At lunch, pressed sandwiches, like a glistening egg BLT, and large salads are popular.
The Extras: Despite all the vintage effort, the bar is is also equipped with ten plasmas flashing financial news and the latest sports headlines.
Where to Sit: If warm, street-facing tables benefit from the large windows that open generously onto LaSalle. In winter, opt for the cozy upstairs booths.
