The industrious masterminds behind Longman & Eagle in Logan Square and Dusek’s in Pilsen have added another dining destination to their repertoire: the Promontory in Hyde Park. This handsome bi-level space features a music venue and a wood-burning hearth that turns out Jared Wentworth’s culinary creations.
But behind the sleek marble-topped bar is what has the neighborhood buzzing. The illustrated cocktail menu reads like a Jeopardy! game board: Choose your spirit from a horizontal list (rum, gin, whiskey, tequila) and then move vertically to select a preparation (carbonated, shaken, stirred).
Go for the Promontory Paloma—a blend of tequila, lime juice, and mint, garnished with charred grapefruit—and toast the new pride of the South Side. 5311 S. Lake Park Ave. W., 312-801-2100
