MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Every neighborhood needs a good diner and in the booming West Loop, this enthusiastic homage to the reliable road trip stopover fits in perfectly. The décor gives a wink and a nod to classic design with retro booths, spinning chrome barstools and blue-rimmed plates, but the top-quality materials keep it on the modern side. An all-day menu of amped-up faves can be had no matter the hour. Craving a shrimp cocktail at 7:00 A.M.? Five jumbo fried shrimp wrapped in somen noodles are ready to go. The Goat Almighty burger lives up to its name with fatty beef brisket, saucy pulled pork and a ground goat patty. Ease the pain of waiting for a table by cooling your heels at the adjacent LG Bakery with a cup of Stumptown, s'mores cookie or Bloody Mary at the bar.
