My happy hour partner and I have been searching, for over a year now, for a place that serves a an excellent french fry, has a fabulous beer selection and a cozy/non-sports bar/non-Wrigleyville-esq crowd atmosphere in the Andersonville, Edgewater, Lincoln Square, Uptown area.
So far we have only come up with:
Hopleaf (food tends to be hit or miss with the exception of the always fabulous mussels)
The Village Tap (Roscoe Village...so not really in the area we want, though the fries are superb)
Ts (again, food is just subpar)
Bad Dog (too many TVs and sports bar atmosphere)
Where is the magic location we're looking for? Any suggestions?
