Roscoe Village highlights: Bars and restaurants

Riverview Tavern
1958 W. Roscoe St. 773-248-9523
A front and a back bar serve up an expanding list of Midwest and Belgian microbrews while multiple TVs broadcast Blackhawks, Bears and other sports games. Beer fans should keep an eye out for exclusive collaboration brews and beer events.

Endgrain
1851 W. Addison St. 773-687-8191
Chef Enoch Simpson sells the hand-crafted gourmet doughnuts that put him on the Chicago pastry map, but he also makes tasty contemporary comfort food in the form of fried chicken and biscuit sandwiches.

John's Place
2132 W. Roscoe St. 773-244-6430
This neighborhood eatery serves stick-to-your-ribs favorites ranging from a hearty helping of chilaquiles at brunch or beer-brined Drunken Chicken at dinnertime.

Kitsch'n
2005 W. Roscoe St. 773-248-7372
This funky throwback cafe can tackle your cravings from noon—think chipotle bloody marys during its longstanding Hangover Brunch--to night, thanks to an artisan taco bar menu on weekends.

Black Dog Gelato
1955 W. Belmont Ave. 773-235-3116
Jessie Oloroso's gelatos proved so successful at her Ukrainian Village shop that she opened a second location in Roscoe. You can't go wrong with any flavor, but her goat cheese-cashew-caramel gelato has earned legendary status.

Volo
2008 W. Roscoe St. 773-348-4600
Seasonal tasting events, vino on tap and a beautiful backyard patio make this wine bar a prime place to unwind with whatever bottle you choose to uncork.

Piazza Bella

Trust this Italian trattoria to turn out a splendid bruschetta, plump ravioli and traditional meat and fish dishes ranging from veal scallopini to chicken marsala.

Beat Kitchen

In addition to a packed lineup of live music and comedy, this bar and grill also cooks up sandwiches, pizzas and tacos to keep your hunger at bay while you watch.

Village Tap
2055 W. Roscoe St. 773-883-0817
Though this bar consistently draws Roscoe residents for its friendly vibe, the ivy-walled beer garden is destination-worthy.

Victory's Banner
2100 W. Roscoe St. 773-665-0227
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day at this vegetarian restaurant, where massive omelets come stuffed with your choices of ingredients (grilled soy bacon, maybe?) and the signature French toast is topped with peach butter.

90 Miles Cuban Cafe
3101 N. Clybourn Ave. 773-248-2822
This BYOB restaurant is beloved for its Cuban specialties, from croquetas to ropa vieja to a mean Cubano sandwich.

Lush Wine & Spirits
2232 W. Roscoe St. 773-281-8888
This wine shop turns into a bar on Tuesday through Saturday nights with by-the-glass wines, beer on tap and tasty snacks—think cured meats, cheese, olives and popcorn—to soak up the booze.
