Taylor Street: home of Rosebud, Al’s #1 Italian Beef and now, more blue Curacao–dyed martinis than a Puerto Vallarta Señor Frog’s. Beefy neighborhood guys and UIC grad students take well to the vodka- and rum-dominated drinks, which go down easy thanks to the old-school Italian comforts provided by the food (flatbreads, arancini) and the two-room wood-paneled space.
