Hash House A Go Go, a new all-day dining spot, is now open in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. At the restaurant group’s first Midwest locations, Hash House A Go Go will serve “twisted farm food” for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. The concept launched in San Diego in 2000 and has five outposts in the Las Vegas area.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our twisted Midwestern fare to the region that inspired it,” said Jim Rees, Chief Operating Officer. “Hash House A Go Go will be a lively gathering place playing on the high energy and fun-loving style of the Gold Coast neighborhood while treating guests to inventive, farm-fresh food, presented in a style that’s all our own.”
Hash House A Go Go’s name fuses the ideas of “old-style food” and “something new.” Based on his Indiana upbringing, founder Andy Beardslee developed the wide-ranging menus and incorporated fresh ingredients and generous portions.
Highlights from the breakfast menu include Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Benedict, HH Famous Meatloaf Hash, and a variety of flavored flapjacks, such as blueberry pecan, brown sugar banana and apple cinnamon. The brunch menu features a Crispy Hand-Hammered Pork Tenderloin Benedict, the Tractor Driver Combo and the O'Hare of the Dog. Lunch options include the Famous One Pound Hash House Stuffed Burger, the Kokomo and Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Salad. Dinner offers Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles, Roasted Market Butternut Squash, Stuffed HH Meatloaf and HH Famous Roasted Chicken Pot Pie. Hash House A Go Go’s beverage program is full of colorful and spirited cocktails to go along with the lively fare.
The restaurant will seat 215 guests, including the 20-seat sidewalk café. The restaurant’s décor is one part farm and one part urban, with details such as old-school black-and-white farm photos, a modern bar, relaxed booths and a retractable front garage door.
