Owen & Engine: a British Pub in Chicago

owen & engine!

After the midterm election hullabaloo, you’re kind of over America. Turn back to the motherland at Owen & Engine, our new favorite Brit pub.

Open for just a few weeks, the cozy Logan Square bar is already packed. Dinner dishes delight, but we recommend heading there for the late-night menu (available ’til 1 a.m.).

Sink into a leather chair or tufted banquette on the upper level and ask your (incredibly attentive) server for the day’s cask beer offerings. Or pick from the awesomely diverse list: twenty draft selections (Porter Brewing Company’s High Tide tastes like pine and citrus) and 48 bottles (from the UK and Czech Republic to Sweden).

Soak up your suds with British-flecked grub: a generous jar of pickles, perfectly battered haddock fish and chips with piquant malt vinegar aioli, and soft-boiled farm eggs with brioche toast soldiers. It is an invasion, after all.

Owen & Engine, 2700 North Western Avenue, at Schubert Avenue (773-235-2930 or owenandengine.com).
