La Sirena Draws the Crowds, early and late

John Manion’s back on the scene with his latest take on Brazilian- inflected cuisine at La Sirena Clandestina. But it’s the cocktail culture at this dark comfy spot that seems to be drawing the hipsters.

You’ll probably wait at the door, with the no-reservation policy, but sipping on a drink or one of the more esoteric wines will make the time fly by. It’s a great late night pick, if you’re in the area. Another great addition to the Chicago dining scene.
