Part garden patio, part sidewalk cafe, the outdoor space at this stalwart is a visual reminder of Wicker Park's shifting population. Artsy musician types and new parents rub elbows early, but once the sun sets, it's prime territory for picking up virtually any kind of local. The surprisingly tasty pub grub is served late, and regardless of the Golden Tee and sports-tuned TVs, the meathead quotient remains low.
