If you’re looking to take in the Wrigleyville atmosphere this summer, a new two-level tavern gets you as close to being a bleacher bum as you can get without a ticket.
The prolific Four Corners Tavern Group has opened Brickhouse Tavern (3647 N. Clark St.), in collaboration with Hickory Street Capital. The latter group (owned by the Ricketts family, which also owns the Cubs) is the developer behind the new retail-and-dining plaza the Park at Wrigley, where Brickhouse is located.
Named after beloved Chicago broadcaster Jack Brickhouse, the sports-themed tavern serves up “twists on Chicago favorites and ballpark favorites,” says Ryan Devitt, Four Corners’s culinary director. Expect sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and lots of appetizers, like the buffalo chicken waffle cone (flash-fried chicken tenderloin, buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, tarragon, chives) and loaded potato twists (BBQ pulled pork, cheddar ale sauce, banana peppers, scallions, sour cream).
