You’ve got to check out Chicago’s first and only Michelin-Starred Brewpub! Located in Lincoln Square, you’ll love the circular booths and plush high back chairs. We recommend you order the Tasting Menu to try a variety of what they have to offer, and be sure to add on the beer pairings! Current beer choices include a Honey Rye, Noble Raven Ale (their Flagship beer), and a RootsBeer Stout. Visit http://www.bandofbohemia.com/ for more information.
