Last Saturday night I chose to dine out in an area I’m not entirely familiar with in Chicago: Logan Square. The locally famed restaurant Longman & Eagle brought me up there, and I’m glad I chose to make the trip. This pork-and-whiskey-focused restaurant was jam packed from the moment I walked in at 9pm to the time I left at midnight, and it never slowed down in between. Luckily for my guest and I, we were able to snag a couple of bar seats, otherwise we would have been waiting, smelling the buffalo frog legs and watching the pork bellies fly by for 2 hours. The dimly lit ambiance and excess of whiskey on display gives the place an old-timey feel, and it’s definitely not a place to pass up. The unique menu, which includes pates, artisanal cheeses, and pork cooked a variety of ways, is diverse and delicious enough to please just about everyone. They don’t accept reservations, so clear your schedule and make a night of it!
