Twisted Spoke

American in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

Don’t let the motorcycle theme, burly burgers and steel finishing intimidate you: behind the macho facade at this popular brunch spot are artful dishes better calibrated for nesting yuppies than hardscrabble Hell’s Angels. If the smoky-sweet BBQ Kobe Brisket sounds too mild, order the ‘Road Rash’ Bloody Mary extra spicy, and chomp your way through its array of harpooned veggies.
