At this Logan Square/Avondale spot from Matthias Merges (Charlie Trotter's), you'll find dishes inspired by street food, such as grilled meats and vegetables, with complex flavors despite their simple preparation. On the menu is yakitori (grilled birds), yasai (grilled vegetables) and kushiyaki (grilled meats and seafood), all sizzled on a charcoal grill that spans the length of the bar. To compliment the flavors coming off the grill, you'll find beer, cocktails, sake and wines from New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain and the U.S. A departure from Merges' past fine dining gigs, this lively neighborhood spot encourages diners to get loud.
