We went here before Second City with a large group and the restaurant was very accommodating. Great food, drinks, and service. Would love to go again if/when I return for my next visit.

The food was delicious. The table-side prepared guacamole was awesome. The drinks were awesome too. They have a great selection of gluten-free options and even made gluten-free chips for the table.

The location on Wells burned down. New address is 215 W. North Ave. Just a block around the corner from old location.
