Long Room - Chicago
This Irving Park pub at the corner of Irving Park Road and Ashland Avenue has been around for almost 20 years. During that time, it's maintained a respectable rep for local live entertainment.
Long Bar's interior simply consists of a "long bar" with several low-slung sofas and booths in the rear. Its newest attraction is the permanent installation of The Biscuit Man, which is tucked inside of the bar.
What was once a pop-up eatery is now a place where customers can get biscuit-encased sandwiches seven days a week. Guests may order biscuits stuffed with hamburger patties, ham and cheese, fried chicken and more.
Chef Zeeshan Shah, who is of Indian descent, also hosts occasional Indian-focused, pop-up dinners at Long Room.
