One of the newer pubs on the block is Kuma's Corner in the Logan Square neighborhood. I think it's probably about a year old, but I finally got around to visiting it recently. The food is outstanding! Their eclectic appetizer menu includes bacon wrapped scallops (huge scallops!) that were very good. A grilled chicken sandwich is definitely not boring with their lemon marinade. The sandwich is served with fries or chips or you can substitute a salad for extra money. I chose the fries and they were delicious! Another interesting entrée is their macaroni and cheese which is made with several kinds of cheese and you pick two items out of a list to mix in with the mac 'n cheese. It's a huge serving (our waitress said she'd never seen anyone finish it) so you'll have leftovers for future enjoyment! Kuma's is also known for it's good selection of beer in bottles and on tap.
I definitely recommend this place!
