MarbleLogan Square | Website
This quirky neighborhood hangout comes to Logan Square courtesy of Mike Dyra and Joe Sabath, the former owners of Cleos in West Town and Bucktown. The decor is quirky -- think marbles everywhere you look -- and the menu is, in a word, wallet-friendly. Most menu items are under $5, from a spicy mayo-drizzled fried chicken hoagie to pita pizzas to diner-style burgers with customizable toppings. A dozen beers on tap include local craft picks such as Half Acre Daisy Cutter and Three Floyds Alpha King. The kitchen stays open late churning out booze-soaking snacks such as fried cheddar cheese curds and wings matched with sauces such as bourbon barbecue and pico lime, a creamy chili-lime sauce. Vegetarians, don't miss the homemade garlic-avocado hummus, veggie burger or veggie hoagie. Daily deals such as $3 Jameson shots every day and a $4 bloody mary bar on Sundays are sure to keep the neighborhood's so-called broke hipsters happy. The only thing that could make everyone happier? The 90-seat back patio that's tented and heated during the winter.
