Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Bar & GrillChicago | Website
It's not just a restaurant, it's a state of mind – or at least that’s what Buffet says of the Navy Pier outpost of his national restaurant chain. The spot is decked out in an island look and feel with a menu full of American and island-inspired favorites. Of course, there’s the “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” but there’s also a few new twists on old favorites – take the Mexicali Burger with shredded cheddar, Monterey jack cheese, fire-roasted tomato salsa and jalapeños. There’s also a diverse line-up of pastas, seafood, nachos, steaks, fajitas, sandwiches and, of course, the namesake beverages that contribute to a laid-back, beachy atmosphere. Sip on an “Off to See the Lizard” – a lemon margarita with tequila, melon liquier and a margarita mix – or one of the cold draft or bottled beers while you listen to live entertainment.
