This is an exceptionally well written and really fucking long article.

Ask for Nick, the bartender. Order any old-school cocktail you want. It will be one of the best you've ever had. Also a terrific Persian menu with tons of vegetarian options.

Superb! Craft tequila and craft tacos, alongside small plates that vary and change regularly. Excellent service. One of the best and the only food/bev program of its kind in Chicago. Highly recommended. Tell them I sent you ;)
