Band of Bohemia

American in Lincoln Square & Ravenswood

Band of Bohemia is the first brewpub to earn a Michelin star. You can see what's cooking in the open kitchen: maybe roasted hen with woodsy vegetables, or braised short rib with kimchi and fermented plum. The five beers on tap, brewed to match the food, contain peculiar ingredients such as jasmine rice and celery seeds.

The shabby-chic ambience – with mismatched chairs, rough wood tables, exposed brick on one wall, wallpaper on another – invites lingering.
