Any recs for a Tuesday night - similar in "feel" to West Town Tavern?

We want to go out tonight... preferably somewhere new (we almost always cook at home during the week with a few exceptions - tonight being one of them!).

A favorite middle-of-the-week standby is West Town Tavern (great food, low key) but we'd like to branch out. We'd like to steer clear of Mexican, Italian, and French.

Anywhere downtown or near north preferred (or northwest).

I'm usually so full of idea, but I've run out of steam today!

Anyone been to Jack's on Halsted or Jane's (in Bucktown)? We live nearby, but I've hesitated trying either for lack of hearing much...

Thanks in advance!

  1. I really like Jack's on Halsted. The food is reliably good and they have good drinks. I'm a big fan of their appetizers, often my friends and I will go and share a bunch of appetizers instead of getting entrees.

    I can't comment on feel in relation to West Town Tavern, b/c I haven't there.
