Farmheads, the group that brought you Farmhouse Chicago and Evanston, is bringing Farm Bar, a bar that’s working to have Midwest-only (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin) beer, wine, cocktails and food. The team has crafted several variations of their own cider in Mineral Point, Wisconsin that will be available at the bar. A 24-line draft system with 4-6 being cider will fill the bar, but in case cider and beer aren’t what cures you, there’s also a 4-line wine draft system and a cocktail menu. The menu is simple with burgers, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and bar snacks and offer a special comfort food weekly and a special of the day.
Rootstock: Dry-Aged Slagel Farms Burger
For Eric Mansavage, executive chef at Farmhouse and Farm Bar, burger cravings mean heading to a neighborhood wine bar. “I love the Dry-Aged Slagel Farms Burger from Rootstock,” he says. “It’s simple, well-executed, locally sourced and delicious. The burger’s Werp Farms greens and bacon aioli seal the deal for me every time.”
