Owen & Engine

From the minute we walked into this Brit-style gastropub, we had a hunch co-owner Bo Fowler had done her homework. Next, we had a hunch that it was Professor Plum with the candlestick in the library. The classy Clue look of the split-level space—flocked damask wallpaper, gorgeously detailed hand-carved wooden bars, vintage Persian rugs, glowing brass sconces, an antique mantel over the fireplace—sets the scene for cask ales and delicious fish-and-chips. In fact, when we brought our London mates in for an authenticity check, they not only approved but became best buds with a Liverpudlian behind the bar who, it turns out, was not rented from a prop shop. 2700 N Western Ave (773-235-2930).
