The Evanston location of the River North beer-focused restaurant opened last summer and has a similar menu but a much larger space. The main room is airy and bright, and since it’s almost entirely comprised of wood, you feel like you’re eating in a barn. The cuisine is simple but consistently well executed, like fried cheese curds served with house ketchup; a very solid grass-fed burger, even better with the addition of a fried egg; earthy roasted mushrooms and, for brunch, perfect, flaky biscuits with butter. The Midwestern beer list notes how many miles away the brews come from, so you can drink a beer from Temperance (1.5 miles down the road in Evanston) or Milwaukee’s Lakefront (74 miles), and marvel over much good beer is brewed in our backyard.
