Vines on Clark, from the folks behind neighbor Cubby Bear, shifted its enotecca approach to bring the bar atmosphere to the forefront--literally. After a brief remodel, the Cubs 2007 home opener also marked the reopening of Vines, where a dozen flat-screen TVs and a bar now located in the front give the spot a sportier edge to fit Wrigleyville. The casual dining menu features Italian-American eats such as sandwiches, pastas, appetizers and flatbread pizzas, including a quirky twist on the pie--the pepperoni pizza soup served in a bread bowl and topped with mozzarella cheese. Now that sounds like a hit for baseball fans. Around 20 wines are available both by the bottle and glass, but the big draw here is nightly food and drink specials. In warmer months, alfresco seating is available in a spacious beer garden to the south, plus on the rooftop deck and a street-level patio.
