This casual American spot debuted a 85-seat outdoor cafe in the fall – about the same time the temps plummeted – so most of us didn’t get to check out their take on an amenity more often associated with Cubs baseball: the rooftop deck. Although you’ll only catch those hot-tempered Cubbies on the rooftop bar’s flatscreens, the view from atop Plymouth is unbeatable. The “L” rumbles by (at conversation-friendly decibels) just south over Van Buren Street, and you can check out Loop landmarks like the Harold Washington Library and the Old Colony Building.
