I always look forward to visiting Chicago, especially when it's work related and I'm encouraged to take customers out for dinner. A highlight of my last visit in November was dinner at Trattoria no. 10 on Dearborn. Holy Baby Cow Batman, that was an amazing Osso Bucco, and the Butternut Squash Ravioli was life changing. Wow! I took a group of people to Kingston Mines to experience the Blues Chicago style, needless to say no one was disappointed. Frank Pellegrino is still whipping the crowd into a frenzy and the bands are killing it nightly.
Playing live blues music until 4am every night of the week, featuring all of Chicago’s talented local musicians and now newly renovated to take up 3 storefronts on Halstead, Kingston Mines is one of Chicago’s best bars. Go for the 3 Bs: Barbq, Beer and Blues. And bring a big crowd because there’s lots of room.
