We all know Phoenicia Specialty Foods is the best place to get international groceries in the Loop, but its bar and restaurant is also well worth a visit. Botanical, wine-and-beer-based cocktails are a major attraction, as are creative eats such as pizzas, sandwiches and creative dishes such as mole-braised lamb tacos in homemade Iraqi flatbread. There's always an art show, and live music and DJs bring extra flavor several nights a week and at Sunday brunch.
