Come for brunch, stay for the booze. This mahogany-retrofitted, Michelin-starred gastropub is one of Chicago’s best causal restaurants. But its array of bar seating (don’t miss Off Site Bar hiding in the vintage garage) makes L&E is a sure bet for a well-made Old-Fashioned any time of the day. Whiskey For Drinking (aka competitively priced pours of very good whiskey) is also a big draw, but the craft cocktail list is impressively diverse once you dive in, so long as you’re not expecting vodka.

ProTip

The “eat, sleep, whiskey” mantra etched on the restaurant’s windows isn’t just a clever catchphrase; a set of six boutique hotel rooms hover upstairs, should you wish to lodge within stumbling distance.
