The gist: Fans of pioneering West Loop wine bar avec were revved up about this One Off Hospitality (Big Star, The Publican, Publican Quality Meats) debut, and for good reason. It arrives on the scene with its very own rooftop space—bar avec—where a totally different food and drink menu is once again ready to welcome date nights and post-work hangs. Those who’ve a tough time snagging seats at the original, uber cozy location, take comfort: This version stretches over a sprawling 4,750 square feet, outfitted in light and lush interiors spanning white tile, terrazzo, and warm wood paneling.
The food: Expect several standbys and staples, from chorizo-stuffed bacon-wrapped dates and salted cod brandade to ‘deluxe’ focaccia with taleggio and truffle oil. There are also plenty of additions in the form of wood-fired pizzas, handmade pastas, and seafood-focused hits.
