A great addition to the Wicker Park neighborhood. Same owners as Chaise Lounge but a whole new look, vibe and menu. Keep the calorie counter at home. It is worth it!

Chef Cary Taylor personally delivered our second dish, a to-die-for Mac & Cheese, and asked our opinion on our half devoured Poutine. All we could say was OMG! Fries, cheese and gravy - CRAZY good! Our third dish, Johnny Cakes with pulled pork, equally delish. A small selection of signature cocktails, unique beers and laid back, friendly servers made this a completely positive experience. Could hang here all night as it has a comfy lodge like atmosphere and a good crowd. And ladies, certainly a few hottie employees to keep the girls a chattin.

I hope this place lasts. It is just what we need in this hood!

This is good for a cool bar scene. Lots of good looking guys. I went on Valentine's day with a date and the food was good but I recommend going early if you want to eat and relax before it turns into such a bar scene.

This restaurant is highly recommended! Great wait staff, awesome ambiance, delicious food, reasonably priced, we loved it! Reservations recommended as Chaise Lounge got really busy around 8:30 p.m. Parking is $10 valet, normal for the area. Upstairs cabanas and bar look to be fun. Relaxing & hip atmosphere, we'll be back!

The tunes? Southern rock. As for the food, chef Cary Taylor kicks off the edited menu with aged-cheddar cheese straws with truffle mayo, hushpuppies with smoked trout, and johnny cakes with Gunthorp Farms pork and chow chow. Dishes utilize…
