The Dandy Crown Restaurant Review

: The Dandy Crown is a chic spot for cocktailing in the River West neighborhood. Driven by Sarah Syman (Drawing Room, Beatnik), the menu boasts classic cocktails, beer, cider and an edited list of European, South American and West Coast wines. The standalone, two-story building plays many parts – happy hour destination, date night locale – with its fireplace, midcentury modern furniture and, naturally, images of kings and queens, a nod to the owner's English heritage. No food yet, but small bites could be upcoming.
