Dusek's Board & Beer/Punch House - Chicago
The team behind The Empty Bottle and Longman & Eagle have restored this old Pilsen opera house to its original state, but with contemporary updates. Originally named Thalia Hall, Dusek's Board & Beer and lower-level Punch House serve modern food with classic cocktails and local beers. The top floor music venue Thalia Hall reopened in early 2014 to host live music acts and other forms of entertainment. Michelin-starred chef Jared Wentworth--who is also behind Longman & Eagle's success--helms the kitchen at Dusek's Board & Beer.
