Description

House-cured boar wurst with pickled grapes, fennel, and frisée? A slew of craft beers and frou-frou signature cocktails? A late-night space on the hottest street in Logan Square? Yes, the hip-ification of Bavarian food is complete. The Radler’s loose and ragged charms start with its spirited decor, which includes giant grandfather clocks and eclectic local artwork. But they extend to chef-partner Nathan Sears’s fun menu: a mix of the traditional (pretzels brushed with clarified butter and served with barley malt butter and blackberry jam) and the modern (fried fingerlings with yogurt salsa verde). Earnest servers and an impeccable beer program featuring more than 20 German-style drafts sweeten the deal.
