Named for the uber-gay Chicago street that it's located on, Halsted's Bar & Grill
(3441 N. Halsted St.
, 773-348-9696) serves several purposes: it's one of the most popular gay-brunch venues in town, serving favorites like chilaquile scrambles and 12 different types of bloody Mary every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am until 3 pm. It's also a casual and affordable dinner spot, and then later each evening it becomes one of Boystown's more enjoyable hangouts for cocktails and cruising.
