There’s nothing out of the ordinary at this Loop bar and grill, and that suits the famished financial district clientele just fine. They’re just happy to have a decent option for an off-the-clock cocktail or a quick lunch that’s above bottom-feeder pub grub. The menu offers coconut shrimp, several salads, sweet potato fries and a meatloaf sandwich, which can be washed down with one of 18 bottled beers.
