Empty Bottle's Bruce Finkelman (also of Logan Square's Longman & Eagle) and Craig Golden, of Space in Evanston,are the minds behind this restaurant and music venue, named after Hyde Park's nearby Promontory Point lakefront area, which in 1933-1934 housed Chicago's second World's Fair. Longman & Eagle chef Jared Wentworth presents a menu of cold, fast, embers, snacks and pastry, including dishes like cornbread panzanella charred romaine, red onion, shaved fennel, cucumber, hearth roasted tomato, french feta, red wine vinaigrette, and spaghetti and veal meatballs. Classic coq au vin and a grilled lamb burger are also available. Not able to stay for a meal? The Promontory serves up a variety of drafts including St. Bernardus "8", Gaffel and Moody Tongue, among others, as well as bottled beers like Three Floyd's Pride & Joy, and Wells Bambardier English Bitter. Craft cocktails also don the menu, including the cinnamon basil smash with El Dorado White and ginger beer, and a specialty cocktail called Thursdays on 53rd with gin, bitters, lemon and meritage. The kitchen is open until 11 p.m. during the week and 1 a.m. on the weekend.
