MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

So much more than a working brewery with a talented kitchen, Band of Bohemia is in fact a truly inspired gastropub that produces its own utterly unique creations both in the glass and on the plate. Located in a repurposed brick building across from the Metra tracks, the look is understandably industrial, with an expansive layout that unwinds into a series of seating options, inviting bar and an open kitchen with another small bar set against pretty blue tiles. Curved, high-backed booths lend intimacy to counter the room’s sheer size. Stainless steel tanks displayed in the back hold the culinary-minded handiwork of their head brewer. On tap, expect a handful of rotating beers, including the thoughtful Pear Fenugreek Wheat featuring notes of pear, maple and a crisp finish. The kitchen's boundless small and large plates defy expectations with delicious success. A fluffy omelette with osetra caviar and a savory brown butter crumble is classically French, while sweetbreads, rolled in Old Bay-seasoned breadcrumbs and served with Alabama white barbecue sauce, smack of the South. Berkshire pork chop served over a pile of kimchi, creamy labneh and compressed apple makes glorious sense.
