My brother is part owner of a new restaurant in Logan Square in Chicago. If you're in the area, get there! It's a local gastropub/bar, with a great whiskey selection.

2657 N Kedzie
(between Milwaukee Ave & Schubert Ave)
Chicago, IL 60647
Neighborhood: Logan Square

The name is in the thread title (Longman & Eagle) :)

They're getting great press, and just got named one of the best 100 bars in the US, and they only opened in January. The chef also just won a city-wide bacon-related competition. He knows what he's doing! He's also competed in KCBS comps before.

They're just off Milwaukee, and very close to the El.

Looks good but appears to be out of my league. Lots of big plates with little fancy food.

They're mostly called "small plates", and are done so that the cost is lower. It's not a fancy place at all; if you're going to discount it because you think it looks too 'fancy', that's your right, but you'll be missing something.
