Parlor Pizza Bar: First Taste

Parlor Pizza Bar:   The West Loop welcomes a sprawling new dining option for Ameri-talian food, pizza, sports-watching, and booze. As much as I’d be inclined to deride a restaurant that lists “Burrata Be Kidding Me” as a menu item, the gimmickry of Parlor Pizza Bar comes as a bit of a welcome respite from […]

It’s Raining Chai at Local Restaurants

Be at the autumnal blues with these new chai-infused creations.  (Fall cocktails at Scofflaw. Hint: chai is featured) I remember a time when I thought chai was so exotic and rare.
