Located in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood, Branch 27 is an American bistro owned by Cary Michael (formerly of Rockit Bar and Grill and Lettuce Entertain You) and Howard Natinsky (of Five Star, Fat Cat, and Empire Liquors). The partners have focused on creating a comfortable, value-oriented concept, with top-notch food and a friendly, modern atmosphere. Open for brunch and dinner, this casual, neighborhood spot is home to a hearty, urban-meets-rustic bistro fare. Expect an exceptional meal paired with craft beers and an extensive wine list, with plenty of glass pours. Located within an early 1900s brick and terra cotta building that once contained Chicago’s 27th ward Library, Branch 27 creatively combines a rustic setting with stylized, handcrafted furnishings and details. A 20’ x 20’ glass atrium anchors the rear of the dining room, creating a year round garden experience and a unique venue for private parties.
