When brothers team up they can really get things done -- the Grimms crafted many of our most enduring fairy tales, while the Marxes created Duck Soup and a classless society that forced everyone to wait in line just to eat some. Bringing their fraternal talents to a drinkery, the dudes behind Gunner's.
From a pair of bros who did lengthy stints at the Silver Palm/Matchbox, Gunner's is a fresh neighborhood bar with a decidedly lived-in feel created by dark wood paneling, an old tin ceiling, and archival B&W photos of landmarks like The Field Museum and Soldier Field, back when it was a memorial to WWI and not Area 51. The menu's still being expanded, but they're kicking off with from-scratch bar bites like mini chipotle chicken sammies, chorizo & pineapple tacos, and chicken tenders battered with Three Floyds, necessary seeing as Cliff's batting average is only respectable when multiplied by three. Larger plates include a Greek-style chicken pita with raw onion/tomato/tzaziki sauce, two sizes of hand-packed, top-em yourself burger, and a yet-to-be-unveiled combo of bratwurst, smoked pork chop, bacon, sauerkraut, and fried egg dubbed the "Hog's Boss", sure to lead to dooks of hazard.
Hooch-wise the plan's to curate an expansive collection of premium Scotch and tequila, but they're already rocking a full bar with a dozen bottled beers like Daisy Cutter from Half Acre, which the Marxes would probably have you give society's collective ownership in spite of that being total Monkey's Business.
