Inspired by all things Midwest, the team behind River North stalwart Farmhouse have just opened a sibling concept called Farm Bar, where they’re sourcing nearly all their ingredients from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. Same casual vibe, same delicious, seasonal grub. The Wisco cheese curds are are don’t-miss, as are the burgers, which are inspired by state. Our pick: the Indiana “Barnyard,” served up with pulled BBQ pork, a sunnyside egg and black garlic ale mustard on a brioche bun.
