P.J. Clarke's Restaurant Review

: It's a bar, for sure, but the menu has plenty to offer. We have learned, however, that bigger is not necessarily better --- so listen up. The burgers are good, the macaroni and cheese is not. The fried calamari is tasty, and the chicken potpie is fine enough. Of course, it’s more about the scene --- and a scene it is, come happy hour --- so no one seems to care if the pot roast, fish ‘n’ chips and baby-back ribs are merely passable. Also located at 302 E. Illinois St., 312-670-7500.
