Razón
Uptown's new double threat

Chicago

Multiple threats are always a good thing, unless they're made against the President, in which case you probably should have stopped at zero. But fear not, because Razón's double threat is strictly culinary, operating as a sunny, glass-cased, wood-burning-oven bakery & cafe by day, then shifting their nighttime efforts to a more formal, 100-seat dining room outfitted with sparkling Italian tile, a 360-degree wood bar, and crystal chandeliers, providing Crystal Light that will help you shed zero pounds.

On the cafe front, breakfast is baked up in the form of flaky pastry rolls w/ spiced beef, and fresh ciabatta loaded with fried eggs, while lunchtime sandwiches includes Slagel Farm brisket w/ fire-roasted peppers, caramelized shallots & honey mustard aioli, and pizza like the house pork sausage/Black Forest ham/bacon/wild mushroom ragu Meat Market, where it's rarely an asset to be doughy. Come dinner, though, you'll find small plates of bacon-wrapped, chorizo-stuffed dates over spicy eggplant, smoked paprika-spiced pork burgers w/ Montchevre goat cheese, and sambal-spiced salmon from Jail Island, which is obviously known for its fresh fish.

To round it out, the roughly 40-bottle wine list will sport glass pours topping out at $9, and the cocktail-inclined can reach for the house specialty Razon: a bourbon-based libation incorporating basil & fresh squeezed lemon that'll quickly to turn you into a threat to everyone.
