    Community Tavern is a hard thing to search on digital LTH but a good restaurant to find in reality. It's not too far from GNR Sol de Mexico and makes a nice nightcap for that experience, with creative tequila cocktails and a relaxed lounge vibe. I haven't run into a server or bartender yet who wasn't a knowledgeable foodie with opinions on other drink programs and kitchens in this area and throughout the city. To brand it a steakhouse (as they do) sells it sideways: they've steered around some classic dishes and preparations for other things they care about, including house charcuterie - the bacon is stellar - Asian herbs, pepitas, squash, and tagines. The burgers including the Sunday evening special are juicy, smoky, and richly topped. The straightforward salad preps with raw shaved vegetables including Brussels sprouts, sharp cheeses, and lightly-seasoned acidic dressings bring me back to Mado and Girl & the Goat. I like what they're doing at the pricepoint and neighborhood and the steady crowds seem to as well. Some links from other threads including a nice piece by Hammond are below.

    Any updates on this place, since new ownership in early 2018?

    Can't help with here. :wink:
    On Thursday night, I walked past it to get to the new location of Fischman's Public House.
    It is a quiet, dim venue, despite gridiron being on televisions. Still offers some of the best craft beer selections on the northwest side.

    Visiting here makes me ponder how the landlord who tried to gouge its rental rate when it was at 4774 N. Milwaukee must be raking it in with its new occupant. :twisted:

    Fischman's menu is kind of weird but their food isn't bad. The beer selection is great, and the bottle shop next door has a good selection of beer, whiskey, and some other stuff.

    I've only been to Community once but really liked it. Really good and interesting cocktails and wine list. The food was excellent and a bit eclectic, too. Can't remember exactly what we had, was there around 6 months ago, maybe?

    Neighborhood gossip is that they're closing the liquor store.

    Not surprising, they were selling off a bunch of their bombers a couple weeks ago.

    Whenever I was in the area I would always try and have dinner at Community Tavern, as I always enjoyed it, but haven't had the time really since they did a complete menu overhaul to a more fancier Asian focused menu and finally did with takeout last week for my birthday. Man it did NOT disappoint. Everything was on point! Highly recommend their takeout if you still don't feel like dining in..
    -Papaya salad
    -Barramundi (green curry, Chinese broccoli, English pea dumplings)
    -Short Rib dumplings - These were fantastic.
    -Scallion pancakes
    -Vietnamese crepe
    -Carrots (w/ shishito & shisho salsa verde.. These were also incredible and had above average spiciness which I appreciated.)

    Also RIP Fischman Public House. That's a real bummer they couldn't make it the 2nd go around. Great people there. Unfortunately if they were struggling before Covid, that would have been the nail in the coffin for sure..
