Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

#30 Blackbird (Chicago, Illinois)

Creative craft cocktails that change to fit the distinct seasons of Chicago and exemplary savory and sweet culinary options have made Blackbird a hit. There are six seasonal cocktails and four Captain’s List cocktails like the Blackbird old fashioned (Woodford Reserve Personal Selection 2017, Demerara, Angostura, orange peel), plus a wine list of nearly 200 varieties on offer. The minimalistIllinois bar, with white space, mahogany red oak, and a stainless steel kitchen, is a comfortable spot for a tipple or two, along with Midwestern food by James Beard Award-winning chef Paul Kahan and chef de cuisine Ryan Pfeiffer. Don’t miss the signature salad of endives with crispy potatoes, basil, Dijon mustard, pancetta, and poached egg. Save room for sweet treats by pastry chef Dana Cree, like the bourbon gooey butter cake with whipped goat cheese, caramelized strudel, sweet potato pie, pecans, and sorghum; and the teff flour crêpe (coffee mascarpone, chicory crumble, candied hazelnut, espresso, and rum).
