The Patio at The Frontier
West Town

So the hipster-vintage-saloon aesthetic and a taxidermy grizzly bear wander into a sports bar. This is pretty much the setup of Frontier, a gastropub from the folks behind Lottie’s and the Pony, which mashes North Woods lodge elements into the neighborhood-tap mold. Chef Brian Jupiter’s food—charbroiled oysters, sliders and even whole-animal feasts—adds another component to the mix, and the more time you spend eating impressive dishes like the tarragon-buttered redfish, the faster it all starts to come together.
