If the modern trends of neon lights, dancefloors, DJ booths, and drinks with glow sticks in them just isn't appealing, you are in luck. City Tavern opens tonight, and we have a feeling it's a keeper. The restaurant/bar looks just as you'd imagine a Revolution-era tavern would look, convenient, since that's what it's going for. In addition to stellar sips from the bar (try the milk punch!), the restaurant boasts a scrumptious menu perfect for sharing or hoarding for yourself. Anyone living or working in the South Loop will appreciate its convenience, and everyone else should just hop in a taxi and get over it. City Tavern opens tonight, and you don't want to be the only unenlightening food and wine connoisseur at the office who hasn't tried it, so move fast.
City Tavern, 1416 South Michigan Avenue (at 14th Street); 312-663-1278.
