6. Output Lounge

Sadly, the majority of Chicagoans haven’t tried the chicken wings from Output Lounge. The original in West Town is a stone’s throw away from the United Center. Hopefully that changes this season as Output’s second location is just north of Wrigley in a space briefly held by WHISK. Output’s wings are moist and have a perfect balance of heat and acidity with a variety of sauces, though classic Buffalo is strong. With this new high-profile location, more sports fans will get to taste some of the best wings in Chicago.

7. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Ohio-based ice cream chain Jeni’s serves its very popular frozen treats on the north end of Gallagher Way adjacent to Wrigley Field. The chain is known for creative and whimsical flavors including sweet cream biscuits and peach jam, fluffernutter, and many dairy-free options.

The Brickhouse Tavern stands just north of Wrigley Field's marquee and Gallagher Way, sharing space inside the Cubs new office building. The patio is lively on game day, but inside Four Corners Tavern Group has created a place that reveres the game with plenty of trinkets from Cubs' history — Gold Gloves and more. The space is two levels and it's far from cookie cutter when it comes to design. The menu was created for fan snacking, but with quality ingredients in appetizers like quesadillas and a waffle cone filled with fried chicken. The name is a tribute to the late Cubs broadcaster Jack Brickhouse.

The heaviest hitters are cocktail bar and refined restaurant Mordecai, the second location of renowned honky tonk bar and taqueria Big Star, a boozy dessert cafe and bar, and Boka’s family-friendly restaurant Dutch & Doc’s.
