Garlic Bread Meatball Bombs Are a Bite-Sized Italian Meal
Inspired by Papa Hemingway himself, this upscale Chicago eatery is decked with heavy wooden communal tables, eclectic oil paintings, and endless rows of second-hand books. The paintings, set against vintage wallpaper, are backlit by a series of dramatic candelabras, dripping with wax. The menu boasts classic cocktail-favorites, hand-crafted with top-shelf spirits -- Aviation Cocktails, Old Fashioneds, and of course, the famous Hemingway Daquiri -- in addition to a full selection of house specialties. The Inn turns out snacks and small plates like bacon-wrapped dates and tuna tartare tacos, along with full brunch and dinner menus. The real reason to keep coming back, however, is the "reading room," tucked behind the noisy bar, built of brown leather couches, arranged around a beautiful brick fireplace.
