Fodor's Expert Review Hopleaf

$$ Far North and Far Northwest Sides American Fodor's Choice

When hops devotee Michael Roper added a dining room onto the back of his beloved tavern, swillers were thrilled with the opportunity to sop their suds with delectable specialties such as Belgian-style mussels steamed in white ale with herbs, Montreal-style brisket (it's slow roasted and briefly smoked, and less sweet than New York–style brisket), and porter-braised beef cheek stew. Even with the expansion of a second full dining room and upstairs space, it's still best to arrive early to avoid waiting in the bar for a table. But don't bring the kids; Roper insists that only those of legal drinking age can eat here.
