American Junkie Chicago
great rooftopgreat open rooftop and huge screen for Hawks playoff game5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and much better than I ever anticipated. Went here with a few friends on a Tuesday night and we split the mussels with chorizo, wings, chips, foie gras / pineapple flat bread, bison burger and hanger steak sandwich. All we're excellent plus they had a great beer list coupled some house brews. We used the power of twitter to start a conversation with their social media manager and ended getting a tour of the rooftop from their GM. He didn't have to do this but we thought it showed excellent customer service and will definitely help to bring us back to this spot.
All in all it has a great atmosphere and a really cool backlit, black and white American flag on its rooftop. Check it out.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!!I can't recall the servers name, but she was great. Service seems to be a priority here and I will definitely be coming back for more! Pork lollipops!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWill give it another try....We found American Junkie on the Internet and decided to give it a try. Despite an almost empty restaurant, we were seated next to the door at a two seater which was barely enough space for the food we ordered. The food: it was good. We started by choosing what our server suggested - the octopus and mussels. Both were quite good. We also ordered the duck fat chips which tasted like they came from a bag. The pork belly and kumquat flatbread was interesting, however, I thought the kumquat overpowered the dish. The wine and cocktail list was decent. The server was attentive and pleasant. This place is LOUD! There are large televisions throughout and the sound was blaring. We could barely speak to one another due to the noise level.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this place.

I can see this new modern bar really becoming the new hot spot in River North4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFun had by all!I went to American Junkie yesterday with some friends and we all really enjoyed it. It was March Madness and the place was packed with a fun crowd. We had the deviled eggs (highly recommended) and the Frieda Burger. It was probably one of the best burgers I've ever had. The sweet potato fries were good but came to us a little cold. I'd definitely come back for a drink upstairs or even a bottle service table. The atmosphere was lively and young. Overall a fun experience!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding.... uniqueFood was outstanding.... unique without being "over the top."Pricing was reasonable.Something fun for everyone... great food, great music, great bar, lots of space!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
