Steak frites and good beer

willygreen Jul 1, 2009 03:43 PM

I'm looking for a place thursday night that has steak and bistro style frites. A good beer selection - or at least a few local taps is important too.

Last time we went to Brasserie Jo and found out they use institutional frozen french fries.

We are staying in Magnificent Mile but willing to take a cab to get out of the touristy area.

      It's a bit of a trek from where you're staying, but Hopleaf in Andersonville would be a terrific choice for you.

        A couple of ideas downtown are: Kiki's Bistro, Le Sardine (sister restaurant to Le Bouchon), Cafe Margeaux. Good luck!
