For over 50 years Gale Street has been serving the great families of the Northwest side of Chicago. It is an honor to be thee celebration place for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations or just because. A recent renovation of our bar and dining room is a happy sign that we are going for 50 more years. Known for our tender baby back ribs, please know we are proud of our entire menu, sourcing the best and freshest ingredients for our guests. Quality, Hospitality and Consistency are our trademarks. If you agree with us, tell your friends and if you don't please tell us. Thank you for your patronage.

The couple behind Follia built this chic, modern Italian spot in Wicker Park. Two wood-burning ovens churn out pizzas like the classic margherita plus there's a wine friendly menu of appetizers, homemade pasta and more. Expect selections such as tortelli in a truffle cream sauce, risotto of the day, fresh fish and steak.

Situated on the second floor of the luxurious Langham hotel in an iconic skyscraper designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe that once housed IBM regional headquarters, Travelle is located along the Chicago River in the heart of downtown Chicago. A play on the word travel, Travelle is a casually elegant restaurant, lounge and bar featuring Chef Tim Graham’s Seasonal American cuisine. Dishes feature ingredients sourced from around the country, utilizing Chef Graham’s connection with some of the finest farms, ranches and orchards in the nation. Alongside a carefully curated 1600-bottle wine list, Travelle boasts a beverage program that highlights skillfully-crafted classic cocktails. Influenced by the romance of the digital age, architect/designer David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group creates a modern environment that conveys history, sophistication and nostalgia into the 124-seat restaurant and 81-seat bar and lounge that overlook the Chicago skyline and river.

Boltwood is a farm-driven, seasonal restaurant with a menu that is as diverse as the community around us.

"If you are really hungry be prepared to order a lot of items. The food here is beautifully prepared. Portions however are small. The menu is designed so that the portions get larger as you move down the list. All of the flavor pairings are interesting and work for the most part. Was I blown away? Not really. The Grilled Bur-uusto was very good, 3 scallops for $17 Ok, Grilled Octopus very good, Hanger Steak prepared medium rare was perfectly cooked. Marinated Carrots + cardamom yogurt, dukkah was odd, very strong on the cardamom. The wine list is unremarkable tasted a couple and decided not to go there. If you want a quiet comfortable evening this might not be the place to go. It is quite loud and you will be sitting on either a wooded bench seat or wooden chair with no padding. Staying for a while is not an option unless you don't mind that. The Chocolate mousse was not a mousse. Mousse is defined as( a prepared food that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture. It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, depending on preparation techniques.) this is more of a light flour-less chocolate pie. Very hard and almost flaky. It was garnished with a dark chocolate mint sauce which was excellent without that it would have been unremarkable. The date Banana Tea Cake was very good. One other note. Bread was not served unless asked for. They no longer provide that for free. It's $4. We did not indulge."

The perfect juxtaposition of lighthearted attitude and intense flavor in an atmosphere that proves fine dining doesn’t have to be uptight.
