Townhouse (From Metromix):
This contemporary American Loop spot, which is close to the Mercantile Exchange and the Lyric Opera, is from Restaurants-America, the folks behind Bar Louie, Red Star Tavern and One North. The interior features over-sized floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook a semi-secluded sidewalk café, mosaic tiling, an expansive bar and a wine wall. The menu offers lighter choices like ahi tuna tacos, an Asian salad and a flat iron steak sandwich, and moves into entrees like halibut piccata and Dijon mustard-laced short ribs. There’s also a grab-n-go area stocked with pastries, sandwiches, salads and more.
