Unlike some of the other more hip spots near the North-Damen-Milwaukee intersection, there likely won't be a see-and-be-seen vibe at this Wicker Park bar -- and that’s just the way owner David Stearns likes it. Stearns says scotch and tequila will have a heavy play on the menu, appealing to regular neighborhood folks who want to sip slowly and take in the relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. The food menu offers healthful, familiar options such as wings, soups, chilis, burgers and sandwiches, such as a barbecue salmon sandwich, a steak sandwich and three different kinds of panini. Fresh seasonal veggies on the side will replace the usual bar standard of fries or chips. Maple floors, Amish hickory tables and local art on the walls all add up to the homey vibe Stearns is going for.
