Owen & Engine | Rooftop guide 2012


The second-story roof of this gastropub is surrounded by a masonry wall, filled with shrubbery from Sprout Home and featuring two big communal tables that sit under the glow of strung vintage lightbulbs. It’s the same menu of British pub grub up here as you get inside the restaurant (heavy on the brown beers and hearty food), but damn if it doesn’t feel more Lake District than London. Couple the stellar dinner menu with a stick-to-your-ribs weekend brunch, and a person could stay outside here all day long.

2700 N Western Ave (773-235-2930).
