DISCLAIMER: a friend of mine has a financial interest in Longman & Eagle

I was lucky to be invited to a friends and family preview of a new bar, Longman and Eagle in the Logan Square neighborhood. We sampled about half the menu, with the four of us at the table sharing. The highlights for me were the Kobe cheeseburger, the butter-poached catfish, and the marrow bones.

The service was amazing. Our waitress was knowledgeable, attentive, and extremely professional. I have not had service this good anywhere without playing at least twice as much for entrees. Perhaps this is because it was friends/family preview, but I'll definitely be back and update this review if warranted.

They currently have 12 taps, all craft and import except one (PBR). They were highlighting the locals with two Goose Islands and Half Acres. They also have McAuslan Stout, Bell's Brown, Maudite, and some others that I can't remember. They have about 60 bottles, with plans to go to about 100. I remember a good selection from the Trappists, as well some nice stuff from Bell's, Dogfish Head, etc.

After dinner, I was introduced to the bar manager, Jim. During our conversation, he said he was looking forward to getting some Surly on tap, as well as being hopeful about expanding the bottle selection. He used to work at Delilah's, and has a great whiskey expertise, which will help him choose the 100+ bottles of bourbon & rye that they plan on stocking. But this is a beer site, so I'll keep it focused.

This place is definitely a high class, foodie-approved destination. The interior is minimal and modern pub-style, but the cuisine and service will let you know that this is more than just a corner bar. I love the raw wood ceiling; it's a classic Chicago touch that keeps the noise level from getting out of control.

Logan Square is turning into quite the beer destination for Chicago: Longman and Eagle, Small Bar, and soon Revolution Brewing.

Also worth mentioning: there's a huge public parking lot across the street.

Thanks to @DMcGirr - place is literally across the strret from Kedzie St exit off the Blue line at Logan Square. You won't see the tiny sign and entrance is not on Kedzie- on corner. True gem. Have a hearty breakfast that begins at 9am. Had a wild boar sloppy Joe lunch with a FFF mild ale--ok two.. Beer list is a nice blend of local/regional with lots of stuff that pairs well with food-- good dozen to choose from. It is truly so close to the blue line that you can to get off and back on and not miss a beat.

Only gave 4.5 on beer as lots of places with bigger selections but everything seemed well chosen. Whisky selection is one of the best I have seen-- esp if rye is in your wheelhouse.

Very good food, including the burger. Strong beer and spirits selection. Knowledgeable staff. Conveniently right off the blue line, making it easy to grab a quick bite on your way to or from ORD.

Longman & Eagle is one of my top places to go in Chicago for excellent food and a tap list that keeps bringing me back. Rotated options from FFF, Half Acre, Solemn Oath as well as Pipeworks NvU on tap provide fantastic opportunities to pair these class beers with the Michelin starred food. Always a pleasure to spend a few hours here, though at peak times it might take you that long to get a table. Fantastic brunch options and an eclectic crowd.
