Edgewater location of the popular Wrigleyville hangout serving a seasonal menu and organic cocktails.

Our Review

It's on flat Devon Avenue in the old Speakeasy space, but somehow the Edgewater outpost of the Wrigleyville hangout Uncommon Ground has an Alpine feel—must be the fireplaces, upscale-rustic decor, and leather easy chairs. As at the original, the seasonal menu emphasizes locally produced, family farmed, and organic products including house-infused vodkas. (Order a "TreeTini," made with the pear vodka, and the restaurant pledges to plant a tree.) It's also the site of the city's first certified organic rooftop garden. The menu's eclectic and surprisingly carnivore-centric given the crunchy mantras: large plates include a pork chop, a duck duo, Gunthorp Farm chicken, and a Dietzler Farm steak with chimichurri. Breakfast and brunch feature standards like huevos and a breakfast burrito but also chilaquiles with house-made chorizo and a breakfast melt with Nueske peppercorn bacon served on Red Hen black bread. There's live entertainment most nights of the week.
