The Perch - Chicago
Sometimes, you get hit with the uncontrollable urge to just hang out in a casual place for some good food and drink, nothing fancy, just tastiness and some relaxation. When that urge hits you, resistance is futile: grab a perch, a brew, and a bite at The Perch.
The Perch is a full-service restaurant and bar, with Finch Brewery onsite and a lot of good vibes to go around, fueled by beer-friendly chow from a flaming rotisserie and wood grill. Leave your tie and high heels at home; The Perch is the place to unwind, enjoy some well-prepared food or just a snack, high-quality brews, and expertly mixed cocktails.
Just a marvelous place to unwind and enjoy life and food, Wicker Park’s The Perch serves the food that encourages you to sit down, solo or with friends, and just chill while you chat and chow down. In addition to a fine selection of exclusive beers, there’s a lot of good, solid food at The Perch.
From the rotisserie comes a beautifully browned half chicken as well as veg-forward dishes like cauliflower, with lemony yogurt and pistachio gremolata, which brings the dish up a notch and turns it into something you probably would not make at home.
The wood grill turns out vegetable dishes like Charred Broccoli (black pepper, buttermilk dressing, pecorino and crispy allium) and a Roasted Vegetable Plate as well as heartier options including Baby Back Ribs and a Grilled New York Strip (arugula, crispy confit potato, wild mushrooms, manchego and Bearnaise sauce). Any time of year, the flavor of a wood-grilled dinner is warming and wonderful.
With an onsite brewery, The Perch is committed to serving high-quality beer, available in a taster, glass or crowler, produced onsite and accompanied by a well-curated collection of bar snacks, including Homemade Corn Nuts, bacon-potato Croquettes, and Maple Glazed Cashews with bacon (Yes!).
