Presidio - Chicago

Located next door to Hot Chocolate in the former home of Bluebird, Presidio positions itself as a cocktail lounge offering cuisine to match. The chow is American focused, and prices are neighborhood friendly.

Guests may dine at the bar, in the lounge or in the rear main dining room. Those wanting to nosh while they drink may choose from a list of upgraded snacks. They may select house-marinated olives, mesquite-smoked Marcona almonds and house-made pimento cheese. Larger plates consist of offerings like Amish chicken thighs, skirt steak and blackberry brown sugar BBQ ribs.

The cocktail menu changes often, sometimes daily, but it's nice to know there's an extensive amaro selection at all times. It consists of 11 choices of Fernet by the glass.
