Stephen Nicoli, a.k.a. 'Nic', (the Store), and longtime buddy Dean Zanella (312 Chicago) own this low-key neighborhood tavern in Lincoln Park, which serves casual fare such as chicken wings, open-faced sloppy joes, rib-eye steak sandwiches and burgers. You can't miss the entrance, there's an oversized Red Sox flag out front; the owners hail from the Boston area and bill the place as "The best Boston bar in Chicago." The tavern's sport focus favors Chicago teams, but Red Sox fans can always catch the game -- even in the beer garden -- while sipping on the selection of draft beers: Guinness, Sam Adams, Harpoon IPA and others.
