The old Gunther Murphy's in Lakeview has been gutted and transformed into a sleek neighborhood bar, from the exterior now covered in panels of Brazilian wood to the slate entryway to the 2,500-square-foot first floor decked out in hickory wood accents. Pony up to the 38-foot copper-plated bar, sink into a bucket barstool and fix your eyes on the illuminated bar made of colored glass and wrought iron piping. So, what's on the menu? Expect choices such as a gigantic sharable grilled cheese sandwich with tomato basil dip, buffalo chicken sliders and a half-pound Cowboy burger with giardiniera and jalapeno-jack cheese.
