The Wicker Park strip gained a new hotspot this month in Black Bull, so we popped in for a taste of the scene on Friday night. Both the 100-seat interior (which saw a luxe facelift after its previous occupant, Angels & Mariachis, shuttered) and the Division Street patio were abuzz with action, as first-daters and groups of girlfriends tipped back Sangria Rosé and sampled Bob Zrenner’s tapas, a lengthy list with highlights such as cod-stuffed piquillo peppers and pickled mussels with garlic potato purée.
