We don't want to jinx them, but the Bulls are looking pretty sharp this season. The secret to their success?
Solid defense. And an MVP.
Another group of MVPs is uniting for a slam dunk team of their own: Scofflaw, the new gin-focused cocktail emporium in Logan Square.
Cocktail vets from The Whistler, Boiler Room, and Simone's have teamed up with a simple but effective game plan: gin, and lots of it — 40 varieties to be exact.
Take a seat at the bar or mosey over to one of the many nooks to focus on the Basil Bramble (North Shore #11 gin, Combier creme de mûre, lemon and basil.)
Take a time-out to tackle goat cheese soufflé with beets, Mizuna greens and blood orange crostini, or the brisket sandwich with onion soubise and gruyère.
Metal bar stools, a fireplace, and exposed brick walls create an eclectic comfort zone beside a dark Prohibition-era oak bar.
Think your grandma's living room, redesigned by hipsters. Not so much the Madhouse as your house.
Looks like another win for Chicago (knock on salvaged wood).
