Despite the owners’ names (Ferdia Doherty and TJ Callahan), this River North newcomer is not an Irish pub. It’s a “Midwestern tavern,” says Doherty, which means you’ll find pasties (handheld pies popular in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula), Michigan wine on tap and a list of “beertails” developed by “friend of Farmhouse” Adam Seger. 228 W Chicago Ave (312-280-4960).
