With summer smacking us right in the face, we’re constantly out and about looking for the best places to hang out with our friends and family. Check out our top 4 “Best Of” favorite hot spot for Summer 2018.
Best Of: Bang For Your Buck
- Green Dot Stables
- Home to the most unique sliders and large accumulation of craft beers ranging at about $3 dollars apiece, Green Dot Stables definitely makes the cut. Though we can’t vouch for what your final bill will look like after you’ve racked up costs after a long night, we can definitely guarantee that you’ll leave satisfied. As a precaution- show up early, wait times are long but no worries- their outdoor bar is fully stocked at your disposal.
Best Of: New Hot Spot
- Ima Noodles
- The new noodle location in Corktown offers various options for noodle and rice bowls. Adding to the rank alongside other Asian inspired locations such a Peterboro, Ima’s Japanese-esque menu also carries gluten free and vegan options for those with dietary restrictions. Feeling a little bourgeois? Give their lobster udon a taste test, let us know how that is.
Best Of: View (With a Side of Drinks)
- The Skip
- Aside from the classic riverfront view from places like Andiamo’s or Joe Muer Seafood, we’re picking a new type of view for our ‘Best Of” list this summer. Hidden away in a quiet alleyway, this open air bar secretly offers a view of the entire art filled street for your enjoyment. The Skip, has made its mark by centering its location right in the middle of the Belt, allowing you to sit and ponder while appreciating your (frozen) drink of choice.
Best Of: Brunch.
- Parks & Recs Diner
- This one is tough. As a avid brunch connoisseur, I’ve personally had my share of amazing dishes at multiple brunch locations but this one in particular is penned in as an all time winner. The diner’s rotating artisanal menu keeps brunch exciting each visit but as expected, their classic menu is never a letdown. Their rustic take on their dishes are always a remarkable sight to see against their 80’s styled location. If you find yourself in a tough spot trying to decide- no worries. Parks & Rex offers ½ orders and short stacks for you to get your fill on a little bit of everything.
