The self-appointed “beer geeks” at City Works Eatery and Pour House (365 W. Dundee Rd., Wheeling) put a modern twist on their food menu, too. Lunch or dinner prix fixe selections all month long offer you queso dip with hot chorizo and micro cilantro for one example. 1871 Chili with Angus steak, milk stout, and pork for another. Smoked provolone highlights the steak sandwich, Sriracha-garlic aioli flavor-blasts their ahi tuna burger, and bleu cheese with red wine demi-glace ups the ante on the salmon burger. Don’t forget to sample some of their rare and special beer tappings from breweries around the world.

Wake up your senses with the sexy, energetic vibe at this North Shore brasserie hot spot. A hybrid of American and French fare, Aboyer (pronounced “ab-wah-yay”; meaning “to bark”) (64 Green Bay Rd., Winnetka) delights with veteran chef Michael Lachowicz’s prix fixe menu for $48. Start with rabbit and sage sausage, goat cheese truffles or a duo of charcuterie maison and artisan cheeses. Pair that with a Faroe Island Salmon, Coq au Vin or Angus hanger steak entrée. Wrap up with coffee-banana panna cotta olive oil cake, decadent dark chocolate gateau or roasted pear crumble. Your taste buds will thank you.
Ten Ninety Brewing Co (1025 N Waukegan Rd, Glenview) means it when they boast “craft beer…elevated”. So many interesting flavor profiles to try! Take in the aroma of hops and malted barley in the air and order up a flight of Half Wit, Angry Dragon and Juice God. Producing complex, refreshing, and challenging beers with unique interpretations of classic styles, their hearty menu doesn’t disappoint either with artisan pizza, quality burgers and sandwiches, some with a beer element, of course. This month, enjoy 15% off your check. Whose having the Beer-Totchos?!
