Located on the edge of Logan Square, Table, Donkey and Stick is a neighborhood restaurant offering seasonal fare and a unique selection of beer, wine and spirits honoring the eating and drinking traditions of the Alps. The restaurant has been named a best new restaurant by Chicago Magazine and awarded a Bib Gourmand by the Guide Michelin.<br /><br />Chef Scott Manley's menu features creative, seasonally driven small and large plates, complemented by a rotating selection of charcuterie and artisan cheeses. The kitchen works with local farmers and whole animals whenever possible; all breads and charcuterie items are made in-house.<br /><br />Table, Donkey and Stick is a place to gather with friends in a warm and comfortable environment. The focus is on the table: a place for food and drink, but also for story-telling and fellowship.

"Had a fun time with the Barbakoa specialty margarita and their huge list of tequilas, as well as their interesting dishes. Service was friendly and attentive, just a bit odd that the server only offered two of the desserts to us, stating "those are the two that are the best so there's no need to see the others." We saw another server showing a whole dessert tray of options to another table. Very weird."

The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot's boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

"Delicious pork belly/egg and devil's eggs appetizers. Filets cooked to perfection. Salmon with it was just a bit overdone. Fantastic martinis. Service was noticeably inattentive, and that was quite surprising considering how Eddie's is known for great service."

The "jewel in Vancouver's culinary crown" presents innovative, seasonal dishes brilliantly conceived by Executive Chef Quang Dang and talented pastry chef Rhonda Viani.<br /><br />Service is seamless and hospitable. The exquisite surroundings include a custom built temperature controlled wall of wine complete with sliding library ladders, providing the backdrop to the bar. The leather chairs are the Mario Bellini designed originals found at MOMA, surrounding etched stone tabletops, highlighting a handsome and inviting room that speaks to contemporary Vancouver.<br /><br />Over seven hundred labels reside in the collection including an excellent range of half bottles and over thirty wines by the glass. ‘BEST OF AWARD OF EXCELLENCE’ Wine Spectator since 2002.<br /><br />PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLINE RESERVATIONS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR PARTIES UP TO 10 GUESTS. <br />Reservations are not required for seats at the bar.

The adjoining Bar is the mountain’s popular gathering place for locals and visitors, and in the summer season the patio is the nexus of Whistler’s village life, wrapped by stunning mountain vistas. <br /><br><br /><br>PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLINE RESERVATIONS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR PARTIES UP TO 12 GUESTS.

"Great ambiance and super pro friendly service. Cuts of meat are below standard in my opinion, for the price. 3 steaks served at our table, all tougher than one would expect."

Pristine seafood & prime steaks. The freshest and best available is delivered twice daily to complement our world famous Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse steaks. Crab cakes, frog legs, and new favorites highlight our new menu. Live blues in the bar nightly.

"Friendly attentive service and delicious food with nice wine by the glass choices. I just don't like a concrete floor in an upscale restaurant, nor do I like sitting by their noisy kitchen and swinging doors."

Inspired by the Supper Club experience of a bygone era, The Bedford puts a modern-day twist on the concept by offering more than just a restaurant. Underground but not exclusive, this Wicker Park outpost offers a full nightlife experience without the formality. Come into the reclaimed landmark bank for a drink or small bite, and end up staying for a full meal, music and more. Sip on one of our signature cocktails in the one-of-a-kind lounge in a former bank vault; experience our boutique wine, beer and spirits selection at the bustling bar; or enjoy our celebrated cuisine in the intimate dining room. Stick around after dinner and you just might find yourself ready to mingle, enjoy some tunes and the company of an old (or new) friend. You could go somewhere else, but why would you want to? The Bedford is an affordable luxury right in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Experience it for yourself.

"Interesting vault room and some fun options on menu. Didn't have the Pinot Noir by the glass on the menu, but then didn't offer to pour a glass from their many Pinot's by the bottle, and that's poor service in my book. Music WAY TOO LOUD."
