  • The bar is open until 2am Tuesday through Friday and until 3am on Saturday.
  • The Nightwood Manhattan is a unique treat for lovers of the classic cocktail, made with rye whiskey, Punt e Mes Italian vermouth and house-made cherry bitters that add flavor and complexity.
  • The covered outdoor cafe is cozily secluded from the street by a wood wall and features a gas fireplace and skylights.
  • The orange swivel chairs in the dining room are comfy, but for serious foodies, the bar seating along the gleaming open kitchen is the place to be for an up-close view of your dinner being prepared.

From OpenTable: 

Welcome to Nightwood. Jason Hammel and Amalea Tshilds, owners of Logan Square's Lula Cafe, invite you to join us in Pilsen -- at our open kitchen, on our patio, in our wine room, with the warmth and fragrance of applewood scenting the air.

We are a farm to table restaurant, featuring local produce and sustainably sourced meats and fish on an ever-changing, handwritten menu.

Spit roasted chicken, whole slow cooked pork, squash grilled over the open flame, a simple bowl of perfect fruit and sorbet. Hand in hand with the best farmers and craftspeople of the midwest, we cook with bold simplicity and care. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
