Black Iron Tavern, Chef Michael Taus' Foray Into the Bar Scene

Take a photo tour of his new River West tavern.

Longtime local chef Michael Taus (Zealous, Taus Authentic) is unleashing his "homey" new bar, Black Iron Tavern, in two days. In less than four months, Taus and team remade the former The Point space on Milwaukee Ave. in River West into a sophisticated bar and eatery complete with the requisite exposed brick and duct work, trendy wallpaper, leather banquettes and a prominent rectangular bar. Outside, a large evolutionary urban mural greets patrons and passersby while Taus kept the long row of streetside windows and large rear patio in tact.

Stay tuned to see what the acclaimed chef has cooked up for the food and beverage menus inside his first full foray into the bar game.
