We took a survey and Beatnik is likely soon to be Chicago's most famous restaurant. Truth… that survey consisted of simply Alexis and me, but we're pretty confident about our prediction! Beatnik is officially my favorite restaurant EVER. I am a self-proclaimed foodie and love eating out, so I do not say this lightly. Everything about the restaurant is so well thought out. From the space, decor, menu, staff, drinks and food, everything was excellent and I love the chill bohemian vibe. Unlike a place like this that you might find in Brooklyn, there is nothing contrived or overdone about the environment. Even if it doesn't seem like it would be your speed, you'll immediately feel like you fit in.
