Pour Drinks & Eats - Lakeview's Primo Patio

July 09 2010 - 8:50 PM

We Chicagoans have an unequivocal obsession with outdoor patios and rooftop bars – from the swanky Loop hotspots to the neighborhood 4-table patios, we’ll take ‘em all.
One patio that really nailed the outdoor ambiance we yearn for is Pour Drinks & Eats in Lakeview. Located on the 3300 block of N. Ashland, Pour has a cocktail menu that that is dressed to impress. Spiked lemonade muddled with strawberries and basil topped our list – but one can’t go wrong with a cocktail menu loaded with infusions of ingredients like basil, brown sugar and Cava. 

The food is basically upgraded bar food, with a twist. A good twist. We, as per usual, sampled just about the entire menu, but the recommended must-try dishes are the pancetta wrapped dates (shout out to our waiter who made me try them after I mentioned that I wasn’t a huge fan of dates. Point made, sir.), the ancho chili chicken fingers and the pigs in a blanket over fries.
