Twice in a week and I don’t live in Chicago. I think I have a problem!
I had been wanting to check out Milk Room, coffee bar by day/spirits by night, since it opened but never planned far enough in advance for a reservation. While perhaps cost prohibitive to visit with any regularity, anyone who appreciates the unique and hard-to-find should love Milk Bar. And with only a few seats you will get plenty of time to chat spirits with the knowledgeable staff.
Yet another excellent addition to the Chicago dining scene for 2017. We enjoyed some tasty mezcal based cocktails in the basement bar before dinner which is worth going early or staying late to visit. The avocado salad may not look like much but I could eat it everyday and I somehow forgot how much I enjoyed this bone marrow dish until going though the photos. Thank you for the excellent hospitality Daniel D!
