The J. Parker, Chicago, IL

The J. Parker Restaurant Review

: This cocktail-and-appetizer hideout from the Boka Restaurant Group attracts a crowd on warm weather nights with a mostly open-air patio surrounded by glass half-walls and a mixture of lounge, bar and hi-top seating. Come winter, the patio turns atrium to still enjoy the park, lake and city views. The menu keeps it simple with standards such as truffle fries, burgers, wings and charcuterie. Drinks range from craft cans (beer) to reds, whites, rosé and Champagne (wine).
