Groups of friends and couples on dates descend to the Press Room's snug basement digs to chitchat at candlelit tables over glasses of red, white and sparkling wines. More than 20 are available by the glass, along with a small cocktail and beer menu. The tranquil vibe is unusual – and much appreciated – in buzzing West Loop.
The kitchen whips up cheese and charcuterie platters, and small plates such as roasted beets and boquerones (Spanish anchovies). Press Room is located in the same building as the Publishing House Bed & Breakfast.
