The 1970s are alive and well at Rhyme Or Reason. The new restaurant, in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, boasts an intriguing cocktail program and “American eclec - tic” menu, all built around the retro theme.

“We think the ‘70s was one of the greatest eras,” says Rhyme Or Reason partner Le’Qoinne Rice. “New music, new booze and different types of cuisines were being introduced and accepted in America. It was truly a great time to dance and celebrate life.”

Executive Chef Chris de la Cueva says the menu is unlike anything guests would usually see on nearby Division Street. Customers can indulge in dishes such as Moroccan Lamb Meatballs and Duck, Duck Pie as well as flirty cocktails like the Sex Machine.

The unique restaurant seats up to 202 guests and has pri - vate dining space available with regular live music and a variety of event packages.

After falling under disrepair for years, Theater on the Lake has emerged from renovations as a brand-new indoor-outdoor venue just in time for summer events.
