Cocktail enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that yet another cool watering hole is coming to Logan Square.
Former 'tenders from the likes of Bonny's, Simone's, and The Whistler quietly purchased the old Streetside Cafe in December and are transforming it into Scofflaw, according to the Chicago Reader.
It's set to re-open late February or early March and the Reader got the scoop on the menu, which was given to them by partner Danny Shapiro (formerly of The Whistler):
Basil Bramble: Broker's Gin, lemon, Briottet Crème de Mure, basil (Bramble riff, nod to Whistler's Rosemary Collins)
Bingo Fizz: rye, Meletti Amaro, lemon, orgeat, coconut soda
Bourbon: Old Fitzgerald Bonded Bourbon, Bénédictine, Marie Brizard orange Curaçao, lemon, Angostura bitters (from David A. Embury, 1948)
Budsap Gamble: Hayman's Old Tom Gin, lime, maple syrup, Cynar, maraschino, cucumber ice
Lonesome Hero: Olmeca Altos Reposado, aperol, guava, lime
Newer Newark: Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy, sweet vermouth, yellow chartreuse, Fernet Branca, root beer bitters
Red Tide: Flor de Caña four-year-old gold rum, lime, pomegranate syrup (nod to Beachbum Berry)
Saint Charles: Jasmine tea-infused Death's Door Gin, Rothman & Winter apricot liqueur, Peychaud's bitters, absinthe rinse (Sazerac riff)
Looks like a fantastic lineup!
