I ordered my go-to favorite, Steak Frites, that came with a scrumptious house steak sauce and a garlic aioli that I dipped everything in. YUM. Hubby had the Community Bibimbap with steak, which is a unique combination of beech mushrooms, jasmine rice, bok choy, a fried egg, and a few other ingredients. It magically all blended in perfection and he ate every bite.
Even though I was already uncomfortably full, I always make room for dessert. We ordered the cutest Baked Alaska, which our waiter was kind enough to cut in half (to make sure I only ate my half LOL). Then I got their signature dessert, Grandma’s Cookie, to go for later! It’s a seasonal cookie that had a design made by a local artist iced on it. Seriously, such a fun touch!
So! If you find yourself in the Portage Park/Old Irving Park neighborhood and are looking for a good girl’s night or date night spot, check out Community Tavern!
