Ostensibly a wine and beer bar, Rootstock has garnered an equally strong reputation for the quality of its food. The menu at this Humboldt Park bar consists of small plates with a few full-on mains for those with large appetites. They serve top notch cheese and charcuterie and moreish duck liver toast and chicken croquettes. The drinks list meanwhile focuses on boutique wines and artisanal beers. The room is cozy and warm, full of second-hand furniture and work by local artists, the staff are knowledgeable and the atmosphere is convivial and inviting. Stop by for a drink but be sure to have a bite to go with it.
