Elevated American classics with high-quality, fresh ingredients are the perfect side-kick to the wide and well-balanced bottled wine list and local canned craft beer available to go here. For that game day vibe, check out their Wings with a soy, ginger, garlic, and cucumber wasabi dip or get a quart of the Turkey Chili (with oyster crackers, natch). Fred’s Garage supports Chicago area breweries with winners like Whiner Le Tub’s Wild Farmhouse Ale, Revolution’s Eugene Porter and Half Acre’s Pony Pils along with a strong selection of whites, reds, rosés, and sparkling wine.

See, swirl, sniff, sip, savor. Practice your wine pairing protocol with a 14 Hands Merlot or Chardonnay from P.F. Changs in Northbrook or choose any two bottles of their hand-selected red or whites for $30. If you find yourself more in the mood for a beer to accompany your Chinese food, grab a Sapporo Lager, also available for take out and delivery. Pair this all with P.F. Changs delicious shareables and dim sum like their Lettuce Wraps, Chili-Garlic Green Beans or Handmade Dumplings for the perfect happy hour fare. Or, make a full meal out of it with your favorites.
