PB&J — Pizza, Beer, and Jukebox — has recently opened in West Loop.
West Loop is now the home of PB&J Restaurant, a solid new hangout complete with a jukebox, pool table, craft cocktails, and an enticing menu that features a $350 peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Needless to say, the past few months have taken a heavy toll on the restaurant industry. Although the city, as well as the state, have both announced big initiatives to help local businesses and restaurants, Chicago has already seen some of its most beloved close for good.
However, as the city continues to reopen its facilities to the public — with indoor and outdoor seating — new businesses are beginning to emerge.
Enter PB&J, West Loop’s newest bar and restaurant:
“Located in the heart of West Loop, PB&J is Chicago’s newest local hangout specializing in our namesake areas: Pizza, Beer, and Jukebox,” the restaurant writes on its homepage. “Serving Neapolitan style pizzas, cold beer on tap, and craft cocktails.”
In addition to the aforementioned areas, the restaurant offers appetizers, gourmet burgers, salads, desserts, as well as a number of cocktails and craft beers.
The most eye-popping item on their menu, however, falls under the Not So Secret section, which features a handful of Peanut Butter and Jelly recipes from a basic Wonder Bread PBJ — which is exactly what you’d think — to custom choices, to the creme de la creme peanut butter and jelly sandwich— the Golden Goose. The sandwich, which requires a day-in-advance ordering, features the following ingredients:
“Maison Dutriez’s Red Currant Jam, The World’s Most Expensive Jelly, Which Is Hand Seeded Using Goose Quills, Adams All Natural Peanut Butter, Toasted Edible Gold Leaf Bread, Drizzle of New Zealand Manuka Honey.”
Slightly more advanced than the ones Mom used to make, eh?
The restaurant also has a number of events in the pipeline for the coming weeks, including a country music themed night on Wednesday, July 15, and free pizza on Friday, July 24. [Featured image: @pbjwestloop]
