Best BYOBs Chicago

Best BYOB’s Chicago

The fall equinox creeps closer every day. September 23. When I look at the calendar now, it reminds me of all the times my mom used to drive me passed middle school the summer after I turned twelve years old.

“Don’t look it at!” I’d scream before diving onto the floor mats, which were always caked with the mud I’d track in after soccer practice. “If you don’t see Emerson, it’s like it doesn’t exist. And if it doesn’t exist, I never have to go back and then summer will go on forever!”

This is me still. A decade and three years later, I avoid eye contact with anything and everything that symbolizes the end of summer. Except the knee-high boot section of Nordstrom’s fall catalog. Naturally.

It’s just so weird because yesterday I fell asleep upset after I dented my bumper when my car slid into the back of an F-150 during the polar vortex, and today I woke up and there were only 11 days left in August.

Obviously, I am dreaming.

And in this dream I must be having, my mind has somehow found a way to conjure up very seemingly real memories of twelve BYOB’s that I supposedly visited during this phantom summer that I’m expected to believe I already had.

This reminds me of something that’s bothered me for much of my adult life, which is how Romy and Michele’s high school reunion would have gone way better for them had Michele just remembered the freaking recipe for glue from her dream. I mean, hello? If you have a dream that tells you to, “raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process,then you write that $#!* down! I just don’t get it.

So in case this is really only a dream and summer is still just around the corner, I’m writing down my personal list of the Best BYOB’s on Chicago’s North Side.

Tango Sur

TANGO SUR

3763 N. Southport

There are two thing that I just flat out love in a dining experience: BYOBs and steak. So it should be no surprise to those of you who have been there that I LOVE Tango Sur. For those of you who have not been there – stop reading now and go. I’m not kidding.

There are few places in Chicago where you can get huge portions of exceptional cuisine and indulge in a bottle or two of wine without breaking the bank. Tango Sur is one of them. Bring your own favorite bottle of wine, whiskey, vodka, tequila, or whatever spirit you most gravitate towards and get ready for an amazing culinary experience. I’ve tried the majority of their menu, so I could tell you all about it but that would take too long. Instead, I’ll just tell you what I usually order:

Appetizers

Empanadas and Provoleta – Amazing, amazing, you must indulge.

Entrée

El Filet – I get this almost every time. You could easily split it because it’s huge. Every steak is great, I just happen to like filets. I must note though that ‘El Pez’ (Chilean salmon) is also delicious.

I know, I only named four things. But you have to understand that the portions are so big that there is not really room for anything else in one sitting! If you want to know more about the menu, you have to check it out. I’ve never met anyone who left disappointed. *Word to the wise, prepare to wait. It’s mostly walk-ins only. They only take reservations for large parties and even then it’s tough unless you make your reservation well in advance. Enjoy!
