“The Chicago Riverwalk continues to shape up with new bar and restaurant openings this summer, as a new two-level spot, Chicago Brewhouse, is now open at Wabash Avenue and Wacker Drive. The riverside eatery and drinkery is dedicated to all things Chicago, including beers brewed in the city, plus local coffees and teas. The Brewhouse is from Vaughan Hospitality, the owners of Emerald Loop in the Loop, Vaughan’s Pub in Lakeview, and Corcoran’s Pub & Grill in Old Town.
The menu is charmingly a map of the city with food representing various Chicago neighborhoods. Uptown’s represented by a Vietnamese banh mi. Devon and Rogers Park gets chicken tikka masala. A foot-long hot dog and Polish sausage reps Maxwell Street and Chatham features rib tips with Lem’s barbecue sauce. Breakfast sandwiches are also planned but Brewhouse isn’t yet open in the morning. Ownership is waiting on city approvals for breakfast service.”
