What Food Pairs with Scotch Whisky? At Chicago’s SideDoor, Lots!

It doesn’t seem that Scotch whisky would be a great pairing with food: the spirit is big, sometimes smoky and seems like it could steamroll all but the most powerful flavors. But you might be surprised how well Scotch can pair with foods. We were eager to try pairing Scotch whisky with Scottish-type food It […]

Weekly Planner: Summer at NoMI Garden, Frontier's Crawfish Boil and Longman & Eagle's New Burger

Weeknight Events at NoMI Garden

Summer is here, and the coveted season is best spent al fresco as much as possible. Ideally with quality food and drink in hand. NoMI Garden has met the call with its new summer programming, held each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through the end of the season. Each Tuesday, a trio of musicians will perform on the rooftop terrace, featuring the likes of jazz, bossa nova and everything in between. On Wednesdays, “Yappy Hour” is a dog-friendly happy hour with special treats, plus drink deals for the humans. Then on Thursdays, the restaurant will offer special dishes to adjoin the regular menu. Look for summery offerings like housemade brats and sausages, sliders, broiled oysters and others. 

Summer Crawfish Boil

In other summery dining news, Frontier is bringing back its beloved crawfish boils for the ultimate seasonal bash. The perfect way to ring in the Fourth of July and start the holiday early, the food-filled fete takes place June 30 at noon, featuring all-you-can-eat crawfish, corn and potatoes. Additional specials include crawfish pie, frozen daiquiris and Abita beers. The price for the crawfish boil itself is $35 per person, and tickets can be purchased here

Longman & Eagle’s New Burger

There’s a new burger in town, and it looks like a real game-changer. Courtesy of Longman & Eagle’s new executive chef, Maxwell Robbins, the decadent menu addition looks poised to become a Chicago star this summer season. For his interpretation, the chef drew inspiration from classic Chicago char burgers found at corner grills and hot dog stands. Tapping into childhood nostalgia, Robbins elevates classic flavors by using Merkts cheddar, Slagel Farms beef and housemade pickles. A thin spread of mustard goes on the patties, along with thinly shaved onions and a mayonnaise- and ketchup-based “fry sauce,” all heaped on a sesame seed bun. 

Fox Bar’s Secondhand Sea House

Fox Bar is always cooking up fun new ideas for seasonal specials and transformative decor. For its latest trick, the cozy cocktail den inside Soho House Chicago has morphed into “Fox Bar’s Secondhand Sea House.” Inspired by classic Midwestern lake houses, the bar is outfitted with dune grass, fish taxidermy and South Shore memorabilia. The makeover extends to the menus, too, with quenching summery cocktails, a fried fish sandwich and custom koozies designed by local artist Don’t Fret.
