The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet - Chicago

The snappy, three-level wine lounge in the West Loop has been a long time coming--two years according to the partners--and it's an exciting addition to the neighborhood. And, as the name suggests, there’s a multiple personality feel to the theme.

The Lunatic, we presume, is the bartender whipping up all sorts of classic and original concoctions. The Lover, naturally, is the sommelier, with plans to introduce all sorts of lovely libations to guests. And The Poet is the chef, and while food is not yet available, the menu looks pretty good.

It promises more than just polite little bites to nosh on while you're imbibing. Shellfish entrées, steak and a juicy signature burger should be on their way by mid-spring.
