Chicago Eats: Roanoke

As I've mentioned before, back before my daily commute involved a two-hour trek out to the far northwest 'burbs, I spent most of my working hours right in the heart of the Loop. Back then, we spent most of the year lamenting the lack of high quality, but still affordable lunch spots in the area (we counted down every year to the day in which the farmers markets returned!). The area was saturated with fast food and super fine dining; however, if you weren't looking to grab a greasy burger or to rack up a three-figure bill for lunch, you were usually out of luck.

Of course, now that I don't work in the Loop anymore, so many fantastic new places have suddenly popped up in that area - and yes, I am totally jealous (what took them so long?!). One of the newest to join the Loop lineup is Roanoke, an upscale lounge perfectly situated to serve the business lunch crowd, pre-theatre dinner crowd, weekend brunchers, and happy hour seekers alike. Roanoke offers diners a variety of nicely done dishes that are familiar and accessible (think salads, pastas, pizzas, and meat-forward dishes), along with an attractive list of craft cocktails featuring their tea-infused liquors.
