Lady Gregory’s Irish Bar & Restaurant

Website

In one word – Sociable

Location – 5260 N. Clark (Clark and Berwyn)

Food – I had a bunch of friends getting together, so I thought that Lady Gregory’s would be the ideal venue to catch up over food and drinks.  We started with Goat Cheese, Basil, Tomato Flat Bread (ah-maze) and then the sweet potato fries, which frankly weren’t that awesome (go to Hopleaf for their curry fries instead).  I wasn’t super hungry after that, so I had Cavolo Nero soup, which had white beans and kale.  Loved loved loved it. And, it was a very generous portion.   My eating partners had the portobello mushroom sandwich (got good reviews), the Gastro Burger (which is like eating 3 burgers at once) and the macaroni & cheese (which looked like a heart attack on a plate…in a good way).

Drink – This place prides itself on its beer and whiskey selection.  The whiskey list alone is an entire book.

Service – Our server was named Laura, and she was fantastic.  The group I was with was energetic and sociable, and she indulged us in conversation and quality recommendation.

Scene – Like Branch 27, Lady Gregory’s is modeled after a library.  The library vibe wasn’t too strong where we were sitting, but it did feel like a social English pub (which I liked).  The place was full despite it being a Wednesday night during the holidays.  And, I appreciated that they allowed us to sit despite not all of our party being present when our table was ready.

Occasion – This is a fun place to catch up with friends, no matter the size of your group.

Price – I spent $37 for my soup, my share of appetizers, 2 beers and a generous tip (because Laura was really exceptional).
